Title and Number of Positions: American International Healthcare Administration Fellowship Program(2)
Qualifications:

Eligibility:

 

The American Hospital Management Company, a Washington, DC based company managing an international system of medical centers, around the world, seeks motivated and dynamic candidates with an interest in international healthcare.  Applicants must have completed a recognized undergraduate degree program or equivalent, and must have exceptional communication, collaborative and organizational skills. Multilanguage skills are preferred but not required. 

 

Term: 12 Months
Description/Structure:

Program Description:

 

The AHMC International Healthcare Administration Fellowship Program is designed to provide the Fellow with the education and practical experience necessary to successfully establish a career in international healthcare management and administration. Through real-time, hands-on operational experiences in established international healthcare institutions, the Fellow will learn the skills needed to manage and operate these complex and unique medical centers. This practical experience, learning side-by-side with seasoned international healthcare administrators, allows the AHMC Fellow to have the opportunity to see these skills being applied in real-time operations. The program is based on a “hands on” approach with the Fellow an integral part of the hospital’s executive team, and active in the organization’s business cycle. Both the practical and the didactic components expose the Fellow to new, evidence-based practices.

 

The fellowship begins with a two-month rotation through several key departments. The rotations are a vital component of the fellowship in that they:

 

  • Help the fellows familiarize themselves with the international healthcare environment;
  • Are necessary for successful project outcomes;
  • Allow the organization to familiarize itself with the fellows;
  • Allow the fellows to identify areas within the organization where they would like to spend extended time through project work or further rotations

 

Fellows shadow executive leadership and rotate through administrative and clinical areas, spending time with ancillary and clinical support services. These initial rotations provide a good overview and a base of knowledge of hospital operations and governance.

 

After initial rotations, the preceptor and fellow determine the appropriate concentration and project portfolio tailored to the strengths and areas of improvement for each individual fellow.  Executive mentors are then matched with fellows based on selected concentrations. This partnership ensures that fellows strengthen and work on necessary skill sets through periodic review of goal achievement.

 

Once concentration areas are selected, a second—more specific—rotation occurs in the area of interest to the fellow. Unlike the broad-based rotations, tours through these areas are focused on operational mechanics and analysis within departments and areas of interest.
