Health Administration Fellowships to Apply to in 2016

If you are seeking to hone your leadership skills and advance your career after completing a Master of Health Administration degree, securing a health administration fellowship is a perfect way to do it. These fellowships are one- to two-year postgraduate programs that provide real-world experience in hospitals and health care systems as fellows work closely with top-level executives. By completing special projects and rotations in various areas, fellows can gain critical skill sets that will help them more easily launch their careers as health care system executives.

Most programs provide a competitive salary, full benefits and the opportunity to participate in conferences and other types of professional development. In fact, according to a compensation survey of postgraduate fellowship programs performed by the American College of Healthcare Executives, salaries range from a low of $30,000 to a high of more than $70,000 annually — with a median salary of $49,800. Forty-six percent of programs included in the survey indicated that compensation may be increased during the fellowship, and 19 percent of programs offer eligibility for incentives or bonuses. Here, we provide a comprehensive list of available health administration fellowships around the country, which is a follow up to our 2014 list.

Committing to a health administration fellowship is a great way to launch your career as a health care executive after you’ve completed graduate school. In this list, we’ve tried to capture great fellowship opportunities from around the country. Did we leave a great fellowship off our list that you know about? If so, tell us!
