Term: One year
Description/Structure:

City of Hope’s Administrative Fellowship Program represents a unique opportunity for qualified candidates interested in working at a highly respected, mission-based medical center and research facility. Because City of Hope provides advanced clinical care and conducts innovative research in a relatively small setting, the fellows are able to work directly with the highest level of executives and become well prepared for careers in academic medicine and research.

The Administrative Fellowship Program is a one-year program beginning in July.  It is designed to cultivate executive leaders in the health care field through exposure to a wide range of operational activities and by fostering close working relationships between the fellows and City of Hope senior management. Specifically, the fellows work with the Senior Vice President of Operations (the preceptor for the fellowship), the Manager of Hospital Operations, and other members of the hospital executive team responsible for the many departments at City of Hope.

Under the guidance of the preceptor, the fellows gain experience in and are exposed to a variety of departments throughout the medical center, research enterprise, development wing, and medical foundation.  Activities and projects focus on a wide array of current issues in health care administration.

For more information and specifics regarding recruitment steps and the fellowship, please refer to our website. The website will be updated with specific 2015 application timeline/deadlines in July.

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.

Description/Structure:

Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, founded in 1891, has a rich history of success in research, education and patient care.  Many medical firsts and 17 Nobel Laureates are associated with the School of Medicine. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks the school among the top six medical schools in the United States.

Washington University School of Medicine, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center are part of Washington University Medical Center, an urban academic medical center occupying 164 acres over 17 city blocks in the Central West End.  The medical center generates an annual economic impact of nearly $4.9 billion for the St. Louis area, according to an economic model maintained by the St. Louis Regional Commerce and Growth Association.

 

The Executive Management Fellowship at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis is an extension of our belief that only through the thoughtful leadership of a diverse group of bright and talented individuals can creative solutions be found to some of the challenges at the forefront of the health care frontier.

Academic medical centers play an important role in the improvement of the health care delivery system. Essential to their collective mission is effective leadership that fosters and embraces innovation, efficiency, safety, quality and cultural competency.

The Executive Management Fellowship is a two-year program designed to provide participants with a thorough exposure to the operation and governance of a nationally ranked, research-based medical school and academic medical center.

Through the mentorship of senior leaders of the School, fellows engage in executive-level discussions and participatory decision-making on complex issues that shape and influence the operation and governance of the School in all aspects of its mission, including its research, education and patient care delivery enterprises.

The experience also allows the fellow to develop an appreciation for the factors influencing the quality, access to, efficiency and competency of the health care delivery system, and to gain an in-depth understanding of the intricate working relationship between the School of Medicine and its affiliated academic medical center.

The fellow acts as a member of the dean’s senior management team for the School of Medicine and participates in relevant faculty and leadership forums and other executive level meetings in which the dean and other members of senior leadership routinely participate.

The selected fellow is an active participant in administrative processes including but not limited to:

  • strategic planning
  • budgeting
  • capital planning
  • other key administrative
  • processes and functions

The fellow also engages in management activities and projects pertaining to strategic partnerships with the School of Medicine’s hospital partners and affiliated health care system.

The fellow will report to the executive vice chancellor for medical affairs and dean of the School of Medicine. Richard J. Stanton, associate vice chancellor for administration and finance, will serve as a mentor and provide frequent feedback and interaction.

Perhaps most importantly, this experience offers the selected individual the opportunity to explore his or her interest in the field of health care administration and to potentially prepare for a leadership role in a medical school or academic medical center.
