The Management Engineering & Internal Consulting Fellowship Program is a one-year advanced learning experience designed to develop outstanding individuals committed to careers in health systems engineering.
The program allows master's-prepared associates to gain the practical experience necessary to meet the minimum requirements of a health systems engineer at Mayo Clinic.
