About This Blog
Welcome to the FellowForum, the Advisory Board Fellowship’s blog for sharing and promoting discussion about ideas and concepts related to executive health care leadership. Our faculty and research team will be posting their latest analysis and insights, as well as links to articles, videos, and other items that we hope will prompt thinking and discussion about leadership. We invite you to join in the conversation.
The second intensive of the Advisory Board Fellowship focuses on the large scale macro-level forces that are shaping the health care industry.

The best place to follow all of the news and commentary is the Advisory Board’s American Health Line blog. To gear up for the proceedings, try starting with the following link.
