Post-Graduate Fellowship in Health Care Administration

Thank you for your interest in the UNC Health Administrative fellowship programs. We are proud to offer 4 fellowship opportunities:

Each fellowship consists of a one-year appointment working with the hospital’s executive staff. The intention of these administrative fellowships is to provide meaningful project-based experiences to graduates of master’s degree programs in healthcare management and/or clearly related disciplines. Fellows will gain exposure to factors affecting the operation of a nationally competitive healthcare system. These project-oriented programs are flexible, allowing the fellow to work in a multitude of areas on projects which match the interests of the individual and organizational needs.

Types of Projects

Though these programs are not “rotational” in nature, selection of projects will expose the fellow to as many departments and in as much depth as the fellow aspires. Sample projects may include chairing teams and/or participating in:

  • Preparation of Strategic Plans
  • Quality and Process Improvement Initiatives
  • Budget Preparation and Financial Management
  • Certificate of Need Application and Site Planning
  • Cost Benefit Analysis
  • Revenue Cycle Improvements
  • Productivity Management and Utilization Studies
  • Business and Program Development

Through staff assignments, committee work, and participation in the hospital management team, Fellows will be exposed to policy formulation, resource allocation decisions, corporate planning and problem solving.

During the year, administrative fellows will gain familiarity with the operations of a major governmental healthcare system, its Board, and also have the opportunities to understand and interact with the operations of affiliate hospitals and their respective fellows. Fellows will become knowledgeable of the major internal and external forces that are shaping the future of UNC Health, the School of Medicine and medical staff organization. This position will offer a unique and challenging experience to individuals interested in pursuing an administrative career within a major healthcare system.
