Associate - Fellowship - ME&C

Management Engineering and Consulting
Position description
The department of Management Engineering and Consulting (ME&C) has a total of 6 associate fellowship positions available in summer 2020. The fellowship is a 1-YEAR LIMITED TENURE position located in Rochester, MN.

The Management Engineering and Consulting (ME&C) Fellowship is a one-year advanced learning experience designed to develop outstanding professionals committed to a career in health systems engineering. The Fellowship allows graduate-level associates to gain the practical experience necessary to meet the minimum requirements of a Health Systems Engineer. This position differs from a traditional administrative fellowship in that associates interface directly with clients (Mayo Clinic departments/divisions or committees), from project kick-off to closure, with limited formal direction from supervisors/preceptors.

Associates will build their systems engineering skillsets through formal and informal educational opportunities and mentorship from experienced Health Systems Engineers. Another key difference from a traditional administrative fellowship is exposure to various functional areas achieved through onboarding, education and project variety, rather than rotations. Practical experience includes providing ME&C support to any Mayo Clinic entity requesting assistance with business strategy and planning, business process engineering, applied analytics or business transformation. The associate will provide analysis, design and recommendations for staffing, workflow, facilities, technology and information needs. Most projects will be cross-functional in nature, involving split or shared responsibility and problem solving with disciplines and personnel from other business areas, sites and regions across the organization. These positions may require travel.
Qualifications: A minimum of a recently completed Master's degree (within the past year) and 1 year of work or internship experience is required. If your master's degree is currently in-progress, graduation must be completed by July 15, 2020 in order to be considered. The Master's degree program is typically in business, health-care administration, or industrial engineering, but applicants from other fields can be considered.

Application: Please include a cover letter, resume and a minimum of two letters of recommendation at the time of application. If your degree is in-progress, please list the anticipated graduation date on your resume.
Additional qualifications
Experience in operational analysis, workflow analysis, staffing analysis, process change, electronic systems implementation, applied analytics, operational research, systems engineering, and artificial intelligence is preferred, but not required.
