About Us



The Baylor College of Medicine Administrative Fellowship Program offers a recent graduate the opportunity to gain management experience within one of the world's leading academic health science institutions.

The application deadline for the 2021 Baylor fellowship is Sept. 28, 2020. The fellowship interview process will consist of telephone and virtual interviews. Selected applicants will participate in telephone interviews with various Baylor management teams that begin in early October.

Once the phone interviews have been completed, selected candidates will receive an invitation to participate in virtual interviews with prior fellows and executive management. These interviews will occur in mid-to-late October.

The Baylor management team will select the new fellows by late October. The selected fellows will be invited for campus tours and will be given opportunities to meet with previous fellows and faculty prior to beginning their fellowship. Selected candidates will begin their fellowship in July 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact the current fellows at adminfellow@bcm.edu.

The Baylor fellowship will not be listed on NCAF (National Council on Administrative Fellowships) this year. For information on how to apply, please see below.
