Registry Partners is a member of the Association of Cancer Executives (ACE) and exhibited at their recent annual meeting in Austin Texas. During the meeting, the new individuals participating in their fellowship program were introduced. The fellowship program provides an opportunity for oncology leaders to gain practical experience, meet and build relationships with like individuals and vendor partners and to increase their awareness of oncology care and programs. The fellowship program aids in understanding practical solutions to common challenges, provides leadership experience, and adds a unique accomplishment to an individuals’ resume.
ACE recently accepted its 4th Fellowship class with 4 individuals accepted and matched to mentors who were prior graduates. This year’s applicants exceeded ACE’s capacity and included their 1st international applicant.
The board of ACE established a governing committee several years ago to develop the curriculum, oversee selection, and serve to support to programs growth. The goal of the program delivers on three areas: 1) education, 2) networking, and 3) opportunity. Fellows work over the course of a year to complete projects that advance the profession, write an article for the ACE newsletter, serve on a committee, network, and provide a presentation to an organization.
Steven Castle participated in the fellowship program and spoke at the 2015 ACE annual meeting. His topic was modeling a financially viable cancer survivorship program that met the new Commission on Cancer Standards and reviewing a wide range of available tools to support deliver.
The members of ACE are key leaders for oncology programs and are providing an excellent opportunity for individuals to grow within oncology administration. For more information on the fellowship program or membership, please contact Brian J. Mandrier at firstname.lastname@example.org
