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.
Fellowship rotations during the first 12 months of the program may include:
- Corporate leadership.
- Strategic planning.
- HonorHealth Medical Group and outpatient services.
- Human Resources.
- NOAH (Neighborhood Outreach Access to Health) Clinics.
- Service lines and hospital regions.
The program is structured around the use of the Daily Management System that includes:
- Patient experience.
- 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.
AVP, Strategic Planning; Manager, Inventory Operations; Director, Regional Strategic Projects and Category Administrator, Supply Chain, are just some examples of positions that former fellows moved into after completing their Fellowhip Program at HonorHealth.
