Administrative fellows at Community will be active members of the organization’s leadership team and participate in a variety of operational, strategic, financial and business planning activities. Fellows meet weekly with their executive preceptor who helps identify projects and tailor professional development throughout the year.

The first month of the fellowship begins with 1:1 meetings with executives from across Community Health System. The fellow will foster relationships with executives, explore areas of interest and gain an appreciation for the various roles each department/area plays in achieving Community’s business goals and strategy. Additionally, fellows will shadow their preceptor and have ongoing weekly meetings to debrief their experiences, ask questions and discuss projects.

The next five months are spent rotating across the system. Fellows round through approximately 82 areas for anywhere from four hours to three days. Additionally, after rounding across a functional area (nursing, operations, outpatient, ancillary, etc.) fellows will shadow an executive leader for a full day to debrief. 

During this timeframe, short-term projects may be identified by the fellows, executives, rounding supervisors and/or preceptors. These short-term projects enable fellows to meaningfully support a department and contribute value to the organization.

The last six months are open to fellows to take on a larger, long-term project and/or take on an interim role within the organization.
