Boston Medical Center Administrative Fellowship Program
The BMC Administrative Fellowship is a one-year administrative program which provides exceptional health care management and leadership training to individuals at New England’s largest safety net hospital. Fellows will be able to engage in the complexities and functions of a large academic and community-based medical center, while working in state-of-the-art clinical facilities and having unsurpassed exposure to a large, diverse patient population.
Through project-based learning guided by members of the BMC executive team, fellows have the distinctive opportunity to become qualified in areas such as corporate structure, capital finance, operations and system-wide strategic planning. Due to the flexible format of BMC’s Administrative Fellowship, fellows focus on a variety of assignments tailored to their background and further define their areas of interest. Fellows will collaborate with senior health care executives, as well as lead their own special projects and initiatives. Fellows expand their skills as they build a meaningful career – one that will impact the way in which modern health care is delivered.
