Fellowships are prestigious opportunities for recent graduates to get hands-on experience, acquire new skills and showcase competencies they attained in their program. Fellowships are the nonclinical equivalent of residencies for the healthcare field. They are highly competitive and usually run from one to two years, where fellows focus on a specific project or gain exposure to a particular area of healthcare.
During their fellowship, graduates are mentored by top healthcare executives from across the country and shown the ins-and-outs of the area they work in, whether a hospital or hospice center, primary care office or physicians group setting. Most of the time, graduates who are given fellowships secure permanent roles with the organization after they complete their fellowship program.
An administrative fellowship is a big honor. It’s an opportunity to keep exploring the healthcare field, while learning about yourself and what you want to do with your career. You network and gain meaningful exposure not typically available straight into a job after graduation.
