Each summer, Brigham Health welcomes a new class of Deland Fellows in Health Care and Society. This one-year administrative experience 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 second in a three-part Brigham Bulletin series introducing this year’s Deland Fellows.

What drew you to the Brigham?
The multipronged focus on providing exceptional medical care, research and education is unique and compelling. I was impressed that the enterprise supports novel ideas and individuals who pursue their passions.
What are you looking forward to working on?
The Deland Fellowship’s flexible, project-based structure across multiple sites and departments within Brigham Health provides an unparalleled opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration. I am particularly excited to be involved in telehealth/telemedicine, digital innovation, clinician/trainee wellness and strategic planning. I am also looking forward to a broader understanding of how world-class hospital organizations function and prioritize endeavors.
Your dream job
I aspire to have a role that allows me to bridge clinical work with hospital leadership to provide a unique perspective on the intersection of business, medicine and science.
Fun fact about you
One of my dreams is to retire in the Irish countryside and open a small dermatology clinic.
