Each summer, Brigham Health welcomes a new class of Deland Fellows in Health Care and Society, who participate in a one-year administrative experience that prepares early-career professionals to be leaders of health care institutions. Fellows work closely with a member of the senior leadership team who serves as their mentor.
This is the first in a two-part series introducing BWH Bulletin readers to this year’s Deland Fellows.
Name: David Rosenwein, MPH
Hometown: Springfield, N.J. (Yes, I like the Yankees!)
Executive mentor: Tom Walsh, MBA, vice president of Analytics, Planning and Process Improvement
Previous role: I just completed my master’s in Public Health at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Prior to going back to school, I was a manager in Care Access at Huron Consulting Group in New York, where I worked on projects related to scheduling optimization, physician template management, patient progression and surgical flow.
What drew you to BWH? While at Huron, I traveled to hospitals across the country to work on various projects. Inevitably, on every project a client would ask, “Well, how does the Brigham do it?”
The Brigham’s ability to be a national leader in the health care industry drew me to the organization. Becoming a member of this flagship institution and being part of the Brigham family is an opportunity I am very excited about.
What are you looking forward to working on? I am eager to learn from providers and professionals throughout the hospital to enhance my understanding of health care delivery and the overall health care system.
Your dream job: My dream job is to be a leader and innovator in a health care organization that actively strives to create a setting that is accessible, safe and manageable for patients to receive the highest quality of care at an affordable cost.
Fun fact about you: I went volcano boarding on an active volcano in Nicaragua, which was ranked as the second-scariest thing to do in 2014, according to CNN.
