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. The fellows also meet regularly with the hospital President and Vice Presidents, particularly the Vice President of Oncology Services, the David A. Gee Administrative Fellowship preceptor.
During the first year, fellows rotate through various departments, including the following:
- President’s Office
- Ambulatory, Quality & Safety
- Patient Care Services
- Siteman (Oncology)
- Perioperative Services
- Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital
- Diversity, Inclusion & Equity
- Human Resources
- Women & Infants
- Facilities, Lab, and Radiology
- Joint Office of Strategic Planning
- Elective Area of Focus
Throughout the first year, fellows are given the opportunity to learn through project work and observation within the rotations while simultaneously owning long-term project work linked to the strategic goals of the hospital. This model is designed to help fellows gain knowledge and experience in academic medical center hospital operations while developing time management and project management skills.
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.
