UNC Hospitals Administrative Fellowship

The Todd L. Peterson Post-Graduate Fellowship program was created at UNC Hospitals in 1982. Named after Todd L. Peterson, retired COO UNC Hospitals, and given this history and tradition, the purpose of the Fellowship program is broadly understood within the hospital and by Executive leadership at UNC Health. Projects that Fellows participate in will be both meaningful to the system and of significant depth so as to provide a rich education.

Fellows have the flexibility to pursue and develop his or her own interests. To facilitate this meaningful experience, Fellows at UNC Hospitals will work with Rowell Daniels, System Vice President, Pharmacy, and Chief Operating Officer UNC Hospitals as the Preceptor. The Preceptor relationship exposes Fellows to Executive level strategic priorities and initiatives at the system level.

Fellows will concurrently report to an assigned Senior Vice President Mentor who will serve as a primary point of contact to express project interest and assignment, provide professional development guidance, and a mentorship relationship. The mentor relationship exposes Fellows to a broad array of operational projects based in numerous clinical service lines, diagnostic and therapeutic departments, and support services functions as well as enhanced exposure to medical staff. Past mentors have included Senior Vice President of Operations and Vice President of operations; and each mentor has embedded their fellow within their operational departments.

Additionally, Dan Lehman, Vice President of Operations, is the Fellowship Coordinator. He serves as a primary point of contact providing day-to-day oversight of the Fellowship experience, including filtering and assigning project work based on Fellow interest, workload, educational opportunity, and organizational need. Dan is also a resource in providing meaningful shadowing opportunities throughout the year.
