The UCLA Administrative Fellowship is a challenging and rewarding twelve-month program designed to provide qualified young leaders with hospital management and administration training in all aspects of an academic medical center. As a Fellow, you will attend various executive leadership meetings, be involved in an array of enterprise-wide projects and initiatives, and lead different projects for the organization.
The Fellowship is project-based and action-oriented. You will be encouraged to learn about all aspects of health care delivery.
