The Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) Administrative Health Care Fellowship Program provides selected participants with the opportunity to broaden and enhance their training, professional skills, and experience in health care administration. This two-year fellowship offers experience working closely with a dynamic team of senior administrators, mid-level management, and clinicians. Project assignments will be in four different areas: clinical/quality, operations, health insurance, and finance. The overall goal of the program is to encourage fellows to further develop their careers in health care administration. We are interested in fellows with varied backgrounds in public health, medicine, business, and other related professions.
Masters or other professional degree in related health care or business field, demonstration of practical experience in project management and performance or process improvement techniques required. Experience in data analysis and working knowledge of computer databases. Excellent organizational, interpersonal, and oral and written communication skills required. Must be graduating from an accredited graduate program in May/June 2017.
The fellowship will run from August 1, 2017 to July 31, 2019. There will be a junior fellow and a senior fellow each year with a one-year overlap.
The program will begin with an orientation to HUHS, which will include meeting with senior administrators, managers, and clinicians throughout the organization. At the end of the introductory period, the fellow will be assigned by the senior fellow to one or more projects.
In addition to rotations, leadership skills are further developed in other ways such as:
Soheyla Gharib, MD
Chief Medical Officer, Harvard University Health Services
Paul Barreira, MD
Director, Harvard University Health Services
The administrative fellows will meet weekly with the Chief Medical Officer and regularly with the Director. In addition, fellows will be assigned a mentor that closely aligns with the fellow’s primary area of interest to serve as an advisor throughout the program. Outside of these formal relationships, there are numerous opportunities for the fellows to create informal relationships with members of the management group, which includes directors and managers of both the clinic and health plans.
Interested candidates should email their resume/CV and completed application to Brenda Martinez at email@example.com by 11:59pm on October 14, 2016.
