Administrative Fellowship Program

The Fellowship Program

The MultiCare fellowship program is a highly visible 12-month, preceptor-directed learning experience focused on developing emerging leaders for our organization. The program provides health system management and administrative experience with mentorship from our senior executive team.

The fellowship focuses on “real world” projects chosen by the preceptor and program coordinator. The interests of the Fellows and the current needs of MultiCare are also considered. The approximate ratio of project work to shadowing is 75 percent projects, 25 percent shadowing.

Program Structure

Our fellows lead projects that are important to our future and reflect the complexity of health care leadership roles.

Curriculum: In addition to “learning by doing”, you’ll have dedicated time to focus on your own development through formal classes, networking, a fellow book club, and industry conferences.

Mentorship: You’ll be provided two layers of executive mentorship, as well as regular meetings with the program administrator and mentorship from past fellows.

Examples of past executive mentors include: SVP/Chief Executive of the Puget Sound Region, VP – Care Continuum, COO of Rockwood Clinic.
