Administrative Fellowship Program

Wheatley Wentzell
Fellow for Middlesex Hospital

The Quinnipiac community is proud to announce that Wheatley Wentzell has been brought in as a fellow for Middlesex Hospital’s Administrative Fellowship Program. Wentzell got her MBA degree from the School of Business in 2012, with a focus in Health Care Management.

This is a great honor within the health care administration field. The Middlesex Hospital Administrative Fellowship was established in 1987 for masters prepared candidates in healthcare administration or a concentration in health care administration. The one-year appointment is designed to foster the professional development of future health care leaders by offering broad-based exposure to the organizational, operational and strategic planning of a multi-level health care system.

In an effort to maximize broad exposure, the program consists of a flexible, project-oriented structure, allowing the fellow the ability to select areas and projects of interest. Wentzell will be responsible for  reporting directly to a member of the Middlesex Hospital executive team and will frequently interact with the entire executive management team, medical staff, and board. As the fellowship has been a welcomed and valued program at Middlesex Hospital for over 20 years, its purpose is understood hospital-wide, and is supported by the executive leadership, governing body, and medical staff.

Wentzell will also develop core competencies and practical management skills by actively participating in interdisciplinary committees and work groups; attending executive-level, medical staff leadership and board of director meetings; receiving one-on-one mentorship; and attending various community and health care industry meetings and events. This experiential learning and enrichment framework provides internal exposure to organizational dynamics as well as external exposure to the broader health care landscape.
