Associate - Fellowship - ME&C

Management Engineering and Consulting
Position description
The department of Management Engineering and Consulting (ME&C) has Associate positions in the ME&C Fellowship available in summer 2021. This is a 1-YEAR LIMITED TENURE position located in Rochester, MN.

The ME&C Fellowship is a one-year learning experience designed to foster the development of outstanding masters-prepared individuals committed to a career in healthcare, business consulting, and systems engineering. The Fellowship allows individuals to gain the practical experience necessary to meet the minimum requirements of a ME&C 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 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 identify, recommend and implement transformational solutions for departments, sites, and shields including data analysis and applied analytics, new staffing models, organizational structures, work flow and throughput, and digital interventions.
