Stanford Health Care invites you to develop your leadership abilities in this rewarding, project-based program. Administrative Fellows enjoy projects in areas such as strategic planning, clinical operations, ambulatory care, digital solutions, network development, facilities planning, performance improvement, and patient experience. They also receive extensive mentoring from senior leaders, opportunities for continued learning within the academic medicine model, and ongoing support as to build expertise and experience working in a health system.
The Administrative Fellows program is designed for recent Public Health, Health Administrative, or related Master’s degree program students. The Fellowship is a 12-month program that starts in June of each year. The Fellowship starts with formal goal setting, where mentors and the program sponsors set expectations for your year and tailor experience to your interests. Throughout the year, Fellows receive ample informal feedback and coaching to support your leadership development.
President and CEO
I am so pleased to support the Administrative Fellowship Program at Stanford Health Care. Having benefitted from a similar opportunity in my own career, I wholeheartedly encourage others to do the same. At Stanford Health Care, we try to make the administrative fellowship experience substantive, challenging, and exciting, to provide an array of learning experiences over the course of the year. In addition, my colleagues and I take pride in providing mentorship and guidance to our fellows. Stanford Health Care is an exciting place to work, and we are fortunate to have the Administrative Fellows contribute to many of the important initiatives and projects that lead us to success as an organization.
I look forward to seeing the growth of Administrative Fellows into great leaders, and I invite those who are interested in benefitting from this experience to explore the program.
Chief Patient Experience Officer
It has been a pleasure to be a mentor for Administrative Fellows since the inception of the program at Stanford Health Care. I have seen talented individuals with immense potential use their skills and experience to grow into leaders within the organization and beyond. As a former fellow myself, I enjoy providing guidance to the fellows to equip them with the knowledge and resources they need to take full advantage of their administrative fellowship experience.
In the early days of the Fellowship, Administrative Fellows are exposed to projects within my department of Patient Experience, giving them both a system-wide and a patient-centric perspective when contributing to projects in various other areas of the organization. Our Stanford Health Care Administrative Fellows have the unique experience of contributing to high-priority projects within the organization, gaining thorough exposure to the academic medical center model, and learning the breadth and depth of a health system.
This is truly a great program for young health care leaders who aspire to learn and grow.
