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.

About University of Colorado Hospital
One of the Nation's Leading Hospitals

Top medical professionals, superior medicine and progressive change make University of Colorado Hospital one of the leading hospitals in the nation.

The Anschutz Medical Campus is a place of arresting vision of what health care should be. The scene of many medical firsts, University of Colorado Hospital is also the site of new models of care like patient-and family-centered care and “medical home,” designed to help patients navigate their ways through what can be a de-humanizing health care system.

It is, of course, where our vast and oft-honored network of family and multi-specialist caregivers – nurses, physicians, staff members, executives and more – assemble to deliver medicine, cures, hope and care to the people of Colorado and the many others who come from around the country to seek our help.

We're famous, too, for our advanced facilities in the unique health care city growing at the Anschutz Medical Campus In Aurora, Colorado.

Our buildings include:

  • The Anschutz Inpatient Pavilion, our main 500+ bed hospital
  • The Anschutz Outpatient Pavilion, home to many of our clinics
  • The Anschutz Cancer Pavilion, home to the renowned clinical services of the University of Colorado Cancer Center (with outcomes that far exceed state averages) 
  • The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute, home to University Laser Vision and what Ophthalmology Times recently named one of the 10 best ophthalmology practices in the country.
  • The Center for Dependency, Addiction and Rehabilitation (CeDAR), the region's premier residential and treatment center for adults and families afflicted with alcoholism, gambling and substance dependencies.

The hospital and its much-honored physicians also operate primary care clinics in seven convenient Denver metro locations.

 

The Region's Only Academic Hospital

Academic hospitals tend to be the first in their regions – and often in the nation – to bring new treatments to the bedside. 

All the providers at University of Colorado Hospital are also faculty members at one of the premier academic research institutions in the country, the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine. They therefore have to keep up with – and often lead – the latest in research and medical treatments.

When they transfer that advanced knowledge in our collaborative teams of experts and specialists, we can often help patients in ways other hospitals cannot.

Our Mission
We improve lives. In big ways through learning, healing and discovery. In small, personal ways through human connection. But in all ways, we improve lives.

Vision 
From health care to health.

Our Values
Patients first. Excellence. Integrity.

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.

The fellow is also exposed to senior-level decision-making processes and participates in team decision making to learn about the interdependent nature of hospital departments.

With guidance from fellowship directors, fellows are also encouraged to seek exposure to activities outside of their core rotations. A broad network of individuals also provide continuous support to the fellow. During each rotation, he or she is assigned a senior level preceptor who provides feedback and direction for working projects. In addition, the fellowship directors are readily available to assist in the fellow’s professional development at any time during the program.

Mass General also offers a strong network of former fellows who meet regularly to discuss current issues in health care such as journal clubs, networking events, fellows night.

As part of their professional development, fellows are invited to attend organizational meetings, lectures and symposiums, and may be funded to attend one national conference or convention. The Division of Finance within the MGPO offers a flexible and supportive environment in which the fellow is assigned a preceptor.

The Cone Health Administrative Fellowship provides an opportunity for young leaders in healthcare to acquire a comprehensive view of the health network through hands-on learning and experience. The program is tailored according to the fellow’s professional needs and interests.  This experience has been intentionally designed to provide targeted training to those with the potential for executive leadership in healthcare. Under the preceptorship of an Executive Vice President, the fellow works closely with all members of senior management and collaborates in decision-making at the executive level.

During the first several months of the program, the fellow spends time learning the core components of the system through rotations, to include quality, organizational development, finance/revenue cycle management, community engagement, clinical operations, strategic planning, and physician partnership/medical affairs - at both the entity and corporate level. Following a rotation phase, the fellow incorporates value-added project work to the learning experience, under the guidance of the senior management team.  Later in the program, the fellow may transition into an interim leadership role with direct administrative responsibility and continued career development opportunities.  Throughout the program, the fellow receives numerous networking and mentorship opportunities with leading executives in healthcare and the surrounding tri-city area, in addition to a competitive salary and fringe benefits.

Qualifications of Applicants:

We seek ambitious, hardworking, and enthusiastic candidates with credentials in one or more of the following areas:

  • Masters in Health Services Administration
  • Master in Public Health
  • Master in Healthcare Administration
  • Master in Business Administration
  • Or any other comparable degree with some professional experience in health care.
Term: One Year, July through June
Description/Structure:

Description/Structure of Program:

UNC Health Care provides two fellowship opportunities, UNC Hospitals (Chapel Hill, NC) and Rex Hospital (Raleigh, NC).  In general, one to two Fellows are selected each year at UNC Hospitals and one Fellow is selected at Rex Hospital.  Each fellowship consists of a one-year appointment to the hospital’s administrative staff.

The intention of these Administrative Fellowships is to provide entry-level experience to graduates of master’s degree programs in health care management and clearly related disciplines. Fellows will have exposure to factors affecting the operation of a nationally competitive health care system. These project-oriented programs are extremely flexible, allowing the Fellow to work in many areas on projects which match the interests of the individual and organizational needs. Though these programs are not “rotational” in nature, selection of projects will expose the Fellow to as many departments and in as much depth as the Fellow aspires. Sample projects may include chairing teams and/ or participating in:

  • Preparation of Strategic Plans
  • Quality and Process Improvement Initiatives
  • Budget Preparation and Financial Management
  • Certificate of Need Application and Site Planning
  • Cost Benefit Analysis
  • Revenue Cycle Improvements
  • Productivity Management and Utilization Studies
  • Business and Program Development

Through staff assignments, committee work, and participation in the hospital management team, Fellows will be exposed to policy formulation, resource allocation decisions, corporate planning and problem solving. During the year, Administrative Fellows will gain familiarity with the operations of a major governmental health care system, its Board, and also have the opportunities to understand and interact with the operations of affiliate hospitals and their respective Fellows. Fellows will become knowledgeable of the major internal and external forces that are shaping the future of UNC Health Care, the School of Medicine and medical staff organization. This position will offer a unique and challenging experience to individuals interested in pursuing an administrative career within a major health care system.

The Administrative Fellowship program was created at UNC Hospitals in 1982.  Because of this history, the purpose of the Fellowship program is broadly understood within the hospital and by executive leadership at UNC Health Care. Projects that Fellows participate in will be both meaningful to the system and of significant depth so as to provide a rich education.

Each program is conspicuous in its flexibility, to allow Fellows to pursue and develop his or her own interests. To facilitate this, Fellows will directly report to:

UNC Hospitals: Dr. Brian Goldstein, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, UNC Hospitals, and Chris Ellington, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer, UNC Hospitals & Chief Financial Officer of System Affiliations

Or

Rex Hospital: David Strong, President, Rex Healthcare & Chief Operating Officer of System Affiliations, UNC Health Care, and Chad Lefteris, Vice President of Operations, Rex Healthcare

Description/Structure:

Salem Health is seeking two Administrative Fellows for 2015.  These one-year fellowships will be primarily centered at Salem Hospital, a 450-bed hospital in the heart of downtown Salem.  Salem Hospital is one of Oregon’s largest acute care hospitals and operates the busiest emergency department in the state.  In 2010, the hospital received Magnet Designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center for its excellence in nursing care.  Salem Health also consists of West Valley Hospital, a critical access hospital in Dallas, Oregon and Willamette Health Partners, a multispecialty Physician Practice Group with practice sites throughout the Oregon West Valley.

Salem Health's Administrative Fellowship prepares leaders for administrative careers in healthcare. The fellowship offers numerous and consistent opportunities to work on projects with the board of trustees, executive leadership, service line directors, managers, and medical staff leadership; projects range from strategic development to operational initiatives.  An executive, serving as the fellow’s preceptor, works closely with the fellow to formulate the goals and objectives of the fellowship.  The fellowship stresses the fellow’s professional development as much as his/her contributions to the organization through project work. From an organizational perspective, the objective of the fellowship is to discover, develop and retain talent that will join and strengthen the leadership team at Salem Health.

In addition to the hospital based Administrative Fellowship, Salem Health is offering a Medical Group Management Fellowship, which gives opportunities in both inpatient and outpatient practice related management. While having a similar overall structure as the hospital based fellowship, the Medical Group Management Fellowship project work will be centered on Medical Practice and Group Management. Projects might include; Physician/Provider interaction, compensation planning, contract management, and Physician/Provider human resource management.  This fellowship is designed to build leaders within medical and clinic management.   

The overall structure of the fellowship will be a combination of project based work, training in Lean management methodologies, and direct management experience. Assignments will be based on the fellow’s interests and the needs of the organization. Typically, fellows have worked with their preceptors to tailor the fellowship experience to best meet the goals and objectives of both the fellow and the organization.  This is a one-year fellowship.

Term: One Year
Description/Structure:

The Administrative Fellowship Program at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center offers unparalleled exposure to the #1 Cancer Center in the World, as designated by US News and World Report over eight of the past 10 years. In existence since the early 1990's, the Administrative Fellowship Program at MD Anderson has trained over 20 years of Administrative Fellows and boasts executive support, mentorship and project-work that can be found at no other Administrative Fellowship program in the country. 

Our Fellowship Program is structured as follows:  

Rotations:

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

  • Help the fellows familiarize themselves with MD Anderson
  • 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, mentorship, and/or further rotations

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

Concentration & Mentorship:

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—set of rotations occur 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. Related governance standards (i.e., ACHE, HFMA, CPHIMS, TAPE) consistent with the concentration, also serve as credential milestones for fellows who qualify. 

Projects:

The MD Anderson Hospital Administrative Fellowship Program allows the fellows to learn how to work both independently and as a member of multidisciplinary team through project-based work. At MD Anderson, the fellows are assured that the quality and caliber of projects build the specific skills needed by healthcare administrators. From day one, fellows are treated with respect as a professional or colleague, and not merely as a student or intern. 

Fellows’ projects are evaluated for skills development in one of the following core administrative competencies:

  • Governance and the Organization
  • Planning and Marketing
  • Human Resources
  • Financial Asset Management
  • Plant and Facility Management
  • Healthcare Information Systems Management
  • Quality Assessment and Improvement
  • Government Regulations and Law
  • Organizational Arrangements and Relationships
  • Education/Research/Ethics

Project deliverables in the past have included presentations, publications, proposals, business plans, budgets, etc.

With the concentration option, incoming fellows have the opportunity to participate in operational projects aligned with the area of interest selected. The intent of this approach is to increase fellows’ exposure to detail-rich projects consistent with their career goals.

ORGANIZATIONAL OVERVIEW

As the third largest not-for-profit health system in the United States, we are committed to providing for the needs of our communities – especially for those who are poor and vulnerable – across Alaska, California, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

Our system includes more than 73,000 caregivers (all employees) serving in a diverse range of ministries from birth to end of life, including acute care, physician clinics, long-term and assisted living, palliative and hospice care, home health, supportive housing and education.

Where we serve

We operate 34 hospitals, 475 physician clinics, 22 long-term care facilities, 19 hospice and home health programs and 693 supportive housing units in 14 locations. Our health plan serves our caregivers and other large employer groups covering 390,000 members.

On any given day, we care for more than 1,200 people in our long-term care settings, more than 4,000 in our hospitals and more than 15,000 in our clinic settings. Daily, we serve more than 7,000 people in our many home health and palliative care programs and almost 800 in supportive housing. We touch more than five times as many lives in non-acute settings as we do in the traditional hospital setting.

A tradition of caring for everyone

When the Sisters arrived in the Pacific Northwest in 1856, they came to answer a call for help from a new pioneer community. What they found were many communities in need of service, and so with dedication to the Mission and collaboration with like-minded partners, their ministry grew to what is now a five-state health system.

Providence Health & Services continues a tradition of caring that the Sisters of Providence began more than 158 years ago. The cornerstone of our Mission is to provide compassionate care that is accessible for all – especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

For further information regarding Providence Health & Services, our ministries and operating locations, please see our website at www.providence.org.

FELLOWSHIP SUMMARY

We are pleased to announce that Providence Health & Services is hosting one Administrative Fellow at our System Office in Renton, WA for the upcoming 2015-2016 fellowship year. The System Office is the main corporate office of our health system which spans the west coast, from Anchorage, Alaska to San Pedro, California. This is a phenomenal opportunity that will allow our Administrative Fellow to work with senior leaders on strategic, system-wide initiatives that touch all of our operations. Partnering and building critical relationships with hospital administrators, regional and system executives across functional and geographical areas is essential to the success of our endeavors and in line with our strategy of "Creating healthier communities, together." This project-based opportunity will be supplemented with additional experiential learning opportunities to provide the Administrative Fellow with a balanced introduction into our health system.

The Providence Health & Services Administrative Fellowship Program is a one-year learning experience that fosters practical development and operational experience in a values-based, not-for-profit health care delivery system. This position will report to the Chief of Leadership Services and receive mentorship from the President and CEO. The goals of the Fellowship Program are:

  • To develop outstanding health system leaders who contribute to meeting Providence’s need for talented leaders in the future
  • To provide an opportunity for individuals to enhance their skills and knowledge through experiences tailored to the interests of the candidate selected
  • To enhance and expand the culture of learning at Providence by providing opportunities for networking, collaborative learning, best practice sharing, the introduction of current academic theory techniques into the system, and the overall enrichment of the Providence community
  • To expand the gender and ethnic diversity of Providence leadership.

Our Administrative Fellowship Program is directed toward individuals who are interested in health care excellence, collaboration, management development, and growth opportunities in a values-based, not-for-profit health care delivery system. Fellows participate in a wide variety of projects, meetings, and other professional experiences designed to strengthen leadership and administrative skills. These experiences include training in change facilitation and acceleration, project management, and more. Project and learning opportunities are tailored to the individual interests of the fellow; however, it is intended that each fellow will experience a broad range of assignments and organizational sites across the system.
