HonorHealth Administrative Fellowship Program

At this time, HonorHealth is no longer accepting applications for the Administrative Fellowship Program for the 2023-2024 cycle.

Program overview

The HonorHealth Administrative Fellowship is an 18-month program that provides practical experience and leadership development through direct exposure to, and active participation in, projects as well as high-level management rotations throughout the health system. The fellowship emphasizes a balanced approach to your continuous learning, project leadership, and productive time. The fellowship program is sponsored by David Price, Senior vice president, ambulatory operations and business development, and supervised by Preston Allred, Director joint venture and ambulatory operations.

Fellowship rotations during the first 12 months of the program may include:

  • Hospital operations
  • Project management
  • Corporate leadership
  • Strategic planning
  • Medical Group services
  • Ambulatory services
  • Finance
  • Service line operations

The program is structured around the use of the Daily Management System that includes:

  • Patient experience
  • Quality/safety
  • People
  • Growth
  • Financial stewardship

In addition to assigned projects, you're encouraged to build relationships and seek assignments within your areas of interest. The remaining six months of the fellowship are self-guided, allowing you to leverage those relationships and experiences and migrate toward a field of interest or organizational need within HonorHealth.

Toward the end of the fellowship, you'll also have the opportunity to present your accomplishments to the senior vice presidents.
