The Administrative Fellowship Program at Baylor College of Medicine strives to cultivate new talent in healthcare management through observation, exchange and hands-on experience. The administrative fellow will have the opportunity to observe, interact and work with the College's senior administrative and clinical leadership. The program provides the fellow with practical experience and leadership development through direct exposure and active participation in projects and high level management activities throughout the organization. Fellows will be encouraged to set goals that will allow them to grow as healthcare professionals. They will work with their preceptor throughout the year to create an experience that will help the fellow translate their learning into skills that can be used throughout their career.
The fellow will also have the opportunity to become a member of the Texas Medical Center Administrative Fellowship Association. This association includes all administrative fellows throughout the TMC. The members of this group have traditionally met once a month for lunch and a meeting with each institution's executive management team. This organization is an excellent way to promote networking skills and learn about the surrounding institutions in the TMC.
