The Postgraduate Fellowship in Health Care Administration (the fellowship
program) recognizes talented early careerists who can develop their skills and
leadership potential in a dynamic and unique environment. The fellowship
program is structured to maximize the learning opportunities for fellows as well
as to support the operational needs of the organization. The goals of the
fellowship program are to:
Identify promising candidates for management and future leadership positions
within Kaiser Permanente.
Provide fellows with an educational and "hands-on" experience that will
contribute to their professional development, as well as to their understanding of
Foster an environment that promotes and nurtures the development of future
health services leaders.
Create opportunities to enhance skills in project development, strategic
implementation, and operations management.
The fellowship program allows for learning opportunities at both the professional
and personal level as well as a balance between project and operational work.
Learning opportunities include:
Hospital and Outpatient Operations
Strategic and Market Planning
Financial and Analytical Performance
Tenure and compensation
The fellowship program begins each July. As a fellow, you will receive a
competitive salary, benefits package, and accrue both vacation and sick leave.
Also, your dependents are eligible for full medical and dental benefits.
Opportunities to attend internal and external educational conferences are
available to current fellows.
During the medical center rotations, fellows interact with Permanente Medical
Group and Kaiser Foundation Hospital/Health Plan leaders, managers, and
staff. In most cases, fellows are accountable to either Medical Group
administrators or Kaiser Foundation Hospital/Health Plan administrators.
Northern California offers a 12-month fellowship focused on health care
operations with two six-month rotations at the medical center. In addition, there
is an option for an additional corporate rotation in the regional offices at the end
of the 12-month period.
Southern California offers a 24-month fellowship that includes three,
eight-month rotations: two at a medical center and/or medical office, and one at
the regional offices. Fellows are placed in their first rotation by the organization
but fellows generally choose their location for the second and third rotations.
Fellows will find a number of informal mentors through both project and
operational work. These relationships form a strong professional network. In
addition, all incoming fellows benefit from an outstanding network of fellowship
alumni who provide excellent support, insight, and guidance.
