UW Health offers a two-year Administrative Fellowship. This program is designed to cultivate leaders in the field of academic health care by fostering close working relationships with senior leadership while exposing the Fellow to a diverse array of operational activities.


The Fellow will spend two years working with senior leadership teams of the health systems' inpatient and ambulatory operations. Additionally, the Fellow will engage with the UW School of Medicine and Public Health to further develop competencies related specifically to academic health care. The two-year program is designed to provide the Fellow with system-level learning through projects focused on the highest strategic initiatives of UW Health, as well as provide experience in day-to-day operations of an academic medical center through rotations and immersion experiences.
