Application Process

The Administrative Fellowship Program seeks candidates from strong master's-level accredited programs. Our selection process aims for diverse skill sets, backgrounds, work experiences and interests.


  • 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
    • Candidates with a master's degree from a program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) are preferred; applications from non-CAHME programs are accepted for review
  • Have health care industry experience such as an internship, externship, fellowship or applicable employment
  • Possess broad knowledge of current and historical perspectives on health care 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

We are unable to provide visa sponsorship for individuals participating in the Administrative Fellowship Program.
