Current Fellows

Sylvia Ciszek
Sylvia Ciszek earned her bachelor’s degree in 2017 from the University of Michigan where she majored in Psychology and minored in Applied Statistics.  During her undergraduate studies, she gained a lot of exposure to the healthcare landscape, through conducting research at the Ann Arbor VA Geriatrics Department, holding an internship position at HealthRise Revenue Cycle Management Solutions and traveling abroad for various international health trips. After receiving her undergraduate degree, she accepted a position in Change Healthcare’s 2-year, Accelerated Development Program. During her time in the program, she rotated through four different departments, including Production Operations, Imaging Workflow & Care Solutions, Network Solutions and User Experience & Design. With each new rotation assignment came a new role that provided an opportunity to expand on skills related to analytics, product development and program management.

Sylvia learned a lot about the critical role technology will play in transforming the industry and providing greater transparency to patients. This sparked her interest in pursuing her Masters in Health Administration (MHA) at Johns Hopkins University, which she felt would enable her to lead the adoption and transformation of innovative solutions in health systems and gain experience working with health system leaders in their efforts to modernize their care delivery models.
