The Administrative Fellowship is a one-to-two-year program designed to provide an opportunity for recent graduates to build valuable professional experience and relationships within the OhioHealth system and the larger community.
Fellows may be placed at one of our OhioHealth member hospitals, ambulatory care divisions, service lines, or in information technology. 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 Fellow will have the opportunity to shadow senior-level executives and participate in informational sessions to discuss topics related to the health care industry and professional development. The Fellow will also gain exposure to system-wide executive meetings. 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.
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
- Epic Implementation
- Capital Management
Many past OhioHealth Fellows are still employed within the organization. Recent Fellows have accepted positions in Strategic Planning, Surgical Services, Human Resources, Neurosciences and Heart and Vascular Services.
