Administrative Fellowship Program

The EHC Administrative Fellowship Program is a two-year, full-time paid position that provides future healthcare executives with opportunities to gain an in-depth understanding of hospital and clinic based healthcare operations in an academic medical center environment.  Fellows take part in hands-on, operationally and financially focused projects and participate in various leadership activities that nurture professional growth.  Furthermore, fellows are exposed to high-level strategic planning and other health system functions, including marketing, human resources, and information technology.

The advantages of participating in the Administrative Fellowship Program include, but are not limited to:

  • Direct reporting relationship to a Chief Executive Officer, a Chief Financial Officer or a member of the senior leadership team who, in collaboration with the fellow, will develop plans for the duration of the fellowship, as well as for their career.
  • Opportunities to observe system-level executives at meetings and retreats throughout the fellowship.
  • Opportunities for developing and enhancing leadership skills in personnel and project management.
  • Opportunities to develop technical skills through working with clinical or financial databases and systems.



"As an academic health system, it is our responsibility to help train, educate and groom our health care leaders of the future. The Emory Healthcare Administrative Fellowship Program is beneficial to both the participants and the individuals within our organization. It provides a remarkable opportunity for students graduating from prestigious graduate programs to gain real-life exposure to and experience in hospital administration. And we benefit from the fresh, unique perspectives the fellows bring to the work they do. Our past participants have continued to grow and achieve great success in their careers and have, most certainly, left a positive impression on the people and programs at Emory Healthcare."
