The OhioHealth Administrative Fellowship is a one-to-two-year program designed to provide an opportunity for recent master-level graduates to build valuable professional experience and relationships within the OhioHealth system and the larger community.
OhioHealth Administrative Fellowship Overview
OhioHealth Administrative Fellows may be placed at one of our OhioHealth member hospitals, ambulatory care divisions or healthcare service lines, or at Information Services. Throughout the program, the Fellow will be under the guidance and coaching of an executive-level preceptor.
The preceptor will provide routine feedback on progress and performance. Fellows will be coached on the following:
- relationship management
- teambuilding and teamwork
- strategic planning
- decision-making and execution
- executive presence
- quality and safety
- financial acumen
- human resources management
The Fellow will develop management skills and knowledge of hospital operations, finance and executive responsibilities. There is an emphasis on active involvement and becoming an independent contributing member of the team.
Leadership and Professional Development
The OhioHealth Administrative Fellow will have the opportunity to interact with senior-level executives and participate in informational sessions to discuss topics related to the healthcare industry and professional development. The Fellow also will gain exposure to system-wide executive meetings.
OhioHealth Administrative Fellows have the opportunity to observe clinical departments and business units throughout the OhioHealth system. Observations are intended to give Fellows exposure to working with physicians, nurses and other staff associates.
As part of the program curriculum, Fellows are expected to attend professional development seminars led by OhioHealth leaders. Examples include conflict management, matrix management and leadership development.
Project Work and Curriculum
The Fellow and his or her preceptor select assignments that are mutually beneficial to the Fellow, the specific healthcare unit and the health system. Examples of past Fellow projects include the following:
- Physician Contracts Management
- Hospital-Wide Lean Implementation
- Feasibility Study for Freestanding Emergency Department
