Application Process

Mayo Clinic Administrative Fellowship Program fellow

The Administrative Fellowship Program seeks diverse candidates from strong master's-level accredited programs. Competition for this program is intense, and selection is a challenging exercise in discerning those best suited, while striving for diverse skill sets, backgrounds, work experiences and interests.

Current and previous administrative fellows have hailed from across the U.S. and have completed their academic training at a wide variety of institutions.


  • Have a master's degree (M.B.A., M.H.A., M.H.S.A. or related field) or be a degree candidate who is on schedule to complete the degree before the fellowship start date in July
    • Preferably have a master's degree from a program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME), though applications from non-CAHME programs are accepted for review
  • Have experience within the health care industry, such as an internship, externship, fellowship or applicable employment
  • Possess broad knowledge of current and historical perspectives of the health care industry that can include business management and administration, clinical practice management, clinical research and education, hospital administration and management, finance, human resources and organizational development, information systems, and managed care

At this time, Mayo Clinic is not able to provide visa sponsorship for individuals participating in the Administrative Fellowship Program.
