City of Hope’s Administrative Fellowship Program represents a unique opportunity for qualified candidates interested in working at a highly respected, mission-based medical center and research facility. Because City of Hope provides advanced clinical care and conducts innovative clinical research in a relatively small setting, the fellow is able to work directly with the highest level of executives and become well prepared for careers in research and academic medicine.
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 fellow and City of Hope senior management. Specifically, the fellow will work with the Executive Officer for City of Hope (the preceptor for the fellowship) as well as members of the hospital executive team responsible for the many departments at City of Hope.
Under the guidance of the preceptor, the fellow will participate in a series of rotations with emphasis on process cores that have been designed to expose the fellow to a wide array of issues in health care administration.
