Candidates for the Mercyhealth Administrative Fellowship should be currently enrolled in an accredited masters level graduate program (preferably CAHME accredited) in Health Administration. Course work must be complete prior to the start of the Fellowship in June 2019.
The administrative fellowship program offers a unique, one-year, project-based experience at a fast-paced, growing, integrated health care delivery system.
As a result of Mercyhealth’s 25 years of experience employing administrative fellows, fellows are able to become immediately involved in the workings of a nationally recognized, vertically-integrated health system.
Administrative fellows have the opportunity to:
- Participate in high-level discussions regarding strategic and operational issues affecting the system
- Receive mentoring from and develop relationships with the Mercyhealth executive leadership team
- Provide support to hospital and clinic operations
- Gain exposure to health insurance, community outreach initiatives, and accountable care organizations
Administrative fellows are based at Mercyhealth Hospital and Trauma Center in Janesville, WI and Mercyhealth Rockton Avenue Hospital in Rockford, IL. Administrative fellows at both locations are extensively involved across the Mercyhealth organization for this system-wide fellowship.
Administrative fellows have the opportunity to be involved in initiatives at Mercyhealth’s five hospitals over 85 primary and specialty center locations, home health and hospice, retail services, and a wholly owned insurance company depending on your interests.
The fellowship is a project-based experience. Fellows are encouraged to be self-directed in pursing their areas of interest with the support of system leaders. Historically, Mercyhealth has offered employment to 100% of administrative fellows upon completion of their fellowship. In fact, former fellows now occupy leadership positions throughout the organization.
Compensation and Benefits:
The Mercyhealth administrative fellowship offers a highly competitive salary. Also included in the compensation package are benefits and moving expense reimbursement. Benefits include Paid time off, Retirement plan, Medical, Dental, Vision, Life and Disability Insurance.
National or Regional Healthcare conference registration and travel cost reimbursement are covered as a part of the fellowship for a conference of your choice.
