To maximize each fellow’s talents while also providing a rich learning experience, NYHealth assigns concrete projects and goals to allow fellows to focus their time and energy.

Connecting the fellow’s interests and existing skill set with opportunities to grow, expand, and attain new competencies makes for a fulfilling experience for the fellow as well as for the mentoring organization.

The National Urban Fellows (NUF) Program trained a diverse cadre of potential leaders in public administration and health management. Each fellow—chosen from a national competition—received full tuition and a living stipend to complete a Master of Public Administration degree at the City University of New York Baruch College, and spent nine months as an intern in a nonprofit organization in the United States. Every year since 2006, a fellow has interned at NYHealth and this support continued for 2013–2014.
