UC Davis Medical Center

Administrative Fellowship Program

As one of 41 NCI designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the nation and the region’s only level one pediatric and adult trauma center, UC Davis Medical Center offers fellows a rich and dynamic training experience in hospital administration. UC Davis Medical Center will offer one fellowship position that will start in July 2013.

Program Eligibility

Applicants must possess strong communication, analytical, interpersonal, leadership, and problem-solving skills. Prior experience working or volunteering in a health care setting is preferred.  In addition, applicants must possess a MHA, MBA, MPH or degree from a closely related field of study from an accredited graduate program (e.g. CAHME, AACSB, or CEPH) by the start date.  Applicants that have completed all academic coursework but who need to complete a one-year internship as a requirement for their degree may apply only to the COO’s Administrative Fellowship.

Chief Operating Officer’s Administrative Fellowship:  The fellow reports directly to the COO and serves as a member of the executive team. The fellowship structure under the COO is heavily operations oriented, focusing on both inpatient and outpatient settings.  In addition to gaining experience in administration, the fellow receives extensive leadership training provided by the COO and other members of the senior management team. While this is a one year contract appointment, an extension of another year may occur.

Application Process

Applicants must apply online at UC Davis Health System Human Resources and include a letter outlining the reasons for pursuing the fellowship, resume, three letters of recommendation, and transcripts from undergraduate and graduate studies.
