The David A. Gee Administrative Fellowship provides graduates from accredited MHA, MBA, MPH, or other healthcare related professional programs with unique exposure to the operation and governance of an academic medical center. Reporting directly to the hospital President, administrative fellows actively participate as members of the hospital executive leadership team and attend Board of Directors, Medical Executive Committee, Clinical Chiefs Meeting, Operations Council, Executive Council, and other high-level meetings. Additionally, the fellows meet regularly with the hospital president and with the vice president of surgical services who serves as the program preceptor.
The administrative fellowship is a two-year program. 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
- Human Resources
- Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital
- Joint Office of Strategic Planning
- Elective Area of Focus
The first year also includes participation in specific projects that are linked to the strategic goals of the hospital. These experiences are designed to help gain a breadth of knowledge of operations in an academic medical center.
The second year of the fellowship is designed for the administrative fellows to gain front-line operational expertise and knowledge depth within a specific service line of the hospital. Second year placement is based on the developmental needs and interests of the fellow, as well as the strategic priorities of the organization.
