Frequently Asked Questions about the FMR Program
What is the FMR Program?
The FMR Program is a leadership development program. Throughout a two year time period, FMRs rotate through four distinct areas of the organization to gain an understanding of both financial and operational insight. The program is designed to provide accelerated exposure to corporate and healthcare finance and develop dynamic financial leaders. After the program ends, FMRs are prepared to move into senior level roles within the organization.
What is the application process like?
An official resume, application and an essay on a pre-determined subject are required. After submitting those documents online, top candidates will receive a phone call from UPMC’s Human Resources department; this phone call is considered a “phone interview”. Candidates that do well on the phone interview will be invited to participate in panel style interviews with a variety of UPMC Finance and Human Resources leadership. During the panel style interview, candidates have an opportunity to interact with FMRs and FMR graduates as well.
What exposure to senior level management and executives do FMRs receive?
This is one of the best “perks” to joining the FMR Program! FMRs gain significant exposure to financial and operational executives throughout the organization. This exposure occurs in a variety of ways – daily interaction within the working environment, executive level meetings, while conducting program related presentations (FMRs conduct individual presentations in our executive boardroom!), and during social events.
What are some of the rotations FMRs could be assigned to?
Rotations span across all five divisions of UPMC – Corporate Services, Hospitals, Physician Services, Insurance Services and International and Commercial Services. Rotation focuses vary between financial analysis, accounting and general business. Examples of current rotations include Corporate Services Financial Planning & Analysis department, Mercy Hospital Finance department and Insurance Services Medicare/Medicaid. FMRs work closely with program leaders throughout their two years to find challenging, meaningful rotations that fit their career aspirations.
Is there a component of community service involved with the program?
The FMR Program has three committees – Service/Social, Communications/Publications and Quality/Process Improvement. The Service/Social committee (led and comprised of current FMR Program participants) is responsible for creating, developing and executing service opportunities. Past opportunities have included work with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, organizing a system-wide toy drive for the Allegheny County Department of Human Services and working with leadership at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC to participate in a RadioThon.
What kind of positions do FMR graduates currently hold?
FMR graduates are working in a variety of roles at UPMC; these roles include senior financial analysts, project managers and business analysts. More senior FMR graduates are currently working as department controllers, accounting managers and some serve as “right hand” to hospital CFOs.
