March 5, 2003 (Lexington, Ky.) -- Kyle Green, a student in the University of Kentucky Martin School of Public Policy and Administration, has been selected as one of two persons in the country to receive an Administrative Fellowship at Johns Hopkins Health System, Baltimore.

The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System is a recognized leader in patient care, medical research and teaching. For 12 straight years, including 2002, U.S. News & World Report placed The Johns Hopkins Hospital at the top of its list of hospital rankings.

“This is the most competitive Administrative Fellowship in the country. Kyle competed against students from top schools such as Yale, Cornell and Dartmouth,” said Eugenia Toma, director of the Martin School, which offers graduate degrees in public administration and health administration, as well as various dual degrees.

Green was selected for the fellowship on the basis of his academic record, four essays he wrote on topics regarding hospital administration, and a series of interviews that culminated with an interview before a 12-member panel of senior management of Johns Hopkins Health System.

During his two-year fellowship Green will work in operations, finance, ambulatory services, and planning and marketing. He will receive a competitive salary and benefits.

“The fellowship will be an unbelievable boost to my career,” he said, adding that working with the innovative leaders at Johns Hopkins will build a solid foundation for a successful career in health care.

Green credited UK for opening this career door.

"I've received outstanding experience as an administrative resident at UK Hospital under the preceptor guidance of UK Hospital Director Joe Claypool and the staff of the hospital,” he said.

A second-year student in the Martin School, Green is pursuing a master’s degree in health administration. “My education at the Martin School prepared me to be competitive on a national level,” Green said. He will complete his graduate work in May prior to beginning the fellowship at Johns Hopkins in July.

He is a native of Danville, Ky., and was graduated from Boyle County High School and Transylvania University with a degree in biology.

Stacy Sanders, the other student to receive a fellowship, attends graduate school at the University of Washington and earned her undergraduate degree at Dartmouth College.
