The David A. Gee Administrative Fellowship is a two-year program that provides graduates from MHA, MHSA, MBA, MPH, or other healthcare related professional programs with unique exposure to the operation and governance of Barnes-Jewish Hospital, affiliated with the Washington University School of Medicine.
Administrative fellows actively participate as members of the hospital executive leadership team through attendance at high level meetings including Board of Directors, Medical Executive Committee, Safety & Quality Council and the President's staff meetings. Additionally, the fellows meet regularly with the hospital President and the Vice President of Women & Infants at Barnes-Jewish Hospital/Vice President of Operations at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, the David A. Gee Administrative Fellowship preceptor.
During the first year, fellows rotate through various departments, including the following:
- President’s Office
- Patient Safety & Quality
- Patient Care Services
- Perioperative Services
- Ancillary Services
- Diversity & Cultural Competence
- Human Resources
- Women & Infants
- BJC Medical Group
- Joint Office of Strategic Planning
- Elective Area of Focus
The first year includes participation in specific projects that are linked to the strategic goals of the hospital. These rotations and projects are designed to gain knowledge and experience in hospital operations in an academic medical center.
The second year of the fellowship is designed for the administrative fellows to gain experience within a specific area of Barnes- Jewish Hospital or the BJC Health System depending on the fellows’ interests and the needs of the organization.
