Administrative Fellowship Program

The Administrative Fellowship Program is embedded in Holy Family Memorial’s culture of being a learning organization. As a comprehensive community hospital and multispecialty physician group, HFM provides an ideal setting to educate and develop future leaders of healthcare administration in a sophisticated, technologically-advanced and integrated healthcare organization.


The Fellowship Program is a full-time, salaried position beginning each June. As a Fellow, you receive a competitive benefits package and accrue both vacation and sick leave. Fellows also have the opportunity to attend state, regional and national conferences and educational events.

The basic structure is a 12-month, rotation and project-based fellowship.

Rotations last between one and three months and are geared to individual interests, skill sets and professional goals. During rotations, the fellow will receive mentorship and guidance directly from the CEO and other senior leadership team members such as the chief operating officer, chief medical officer and chief innovation officer. Rotational areas include:

  • Strategic and market planning
  • Financial analyses and performance
  • Governance
  • Hospital operations
  • Clinical operations
  • Physician services
  • Process and performance improvement

The fellow works on a variety of projects based on both the needs of the organization and the fellow’s specific interests and skills. Examples of projects from former fellows include:

  • Network-wide environmental assessment
  • Pro forma analysis for the expansion of the Wellness Center
  • Consumer research survey for patient media preferences
  • Cost/benefit analysis for rheumatology physician recruitment
  • New market area business proposal
  • Patient-centered medical home report
  • Facility strategic planning
  • Integration and physician personal practice development plan
  • Cardiology service line growth plan
