The Administrative Fellowship is designed to develop future leaders in healthcare.
Texas Children's Hospital believes that leadership development occurs through a variety of experiences including working closely with senior leaders, involvement in strategic projects, partnering with an executive mentor, attending leadership meetings and participating in world-class development workshops.
Within the first few weeks of your fellowship, you will have the opportunity to meet with members of the Executive Council to gain a better understanding of their areas of responsibility as well as a sense of their experiences and leadership.
As an administrative fellow you will be involved in a variety of strategic projects. Historically, participants have developed business plans for expansion projects, helped design strategic initiatives such as enterprise content management or served as team members on other key projects. As a result of former fellows' successful projects, Texas Children's Hospital has developed new lines of service, including the Texas Children's Health Centers.
As an administrative fellow, you will be paired with an executive mentor.You will have opportunities to shadow your mentor and learn from his or her experiences.Your mentor will help you better understand the organization, strategic priorities and growth plans, as well as ensure you have a well-rounded experience in the program.

Here you will gain valuable insight into the direction of the Texas Children's organization and the top challenges facing healthcare and leadership. Additionally, fellows have a myriad of opportunities to participate in other senior leader meetings.
