What is the Trauma Finance Fellowship Program?


In 2008, TCAA introduced the fellowship program to expand the fiscal expertise of trauma program managers who have shown a commitment to the field as well as the future of trauma care. The program consists of a two-week funded fellowship with TCAA staff, on-site in Mooresville, NC. This fellowship offers CEs, follows a structured curriculum and provides a pre and post evaluation and includes a project unique to participant's healthcare objectives.


TCAA fellows get the opportunity to network with the TCAA staff, plus members from across the country. Additionally, they learn more about TCAA services and programs, including TCAA's advocacy efforts. There are opportunities to develop business and management skills, build a trauma finance knowledge base, analyze data and reports, and much, much more.


If you are interested in learning more about TCAA and becoming a part of an innovative association, TCAA looks forward to receiving your fellowship application!
