Our renowned program provides early careerists with exposure to executive leadership, high-level decision-making, and opportunities to lead individual projects, at the nation’s largest children’s hospital. This program provides an unparalleled networking opportunity, many of Texas Children’s current leaders got their start in this program. The Administrative Fellowship program offers a unique opportunity to learn about the values, mission, and structure of Texas Children’s. Fellows will spend the first two weeks in an immersive and hands-on orientation. This provides fellows with an opportunity to become familiar with the institution, meet key leaders, and identify areas of interest for further project work or rotations. Fellows will then spend time shadowing and working with key leaders to gain perspective on day-to-day operations and decisions faced by executive leadership. Fellows will work closely with the executive leadership team throughout the program on strategic projects that further the organization’s mission and needs. They will attend executive-level and Board of Trustees meetings throughout the program to gain valuable insight into the organization’s direction and top challenges facing healthcare and leadership. We believe that development occurs through a variety of experiences, including working closely with senior leaders, involvement in projects, attending leadership meetings, as well as participating in world class development opportunities. The Texas Children’s Administrative Fellowship Program offers an unmatched opportunity to learn and grow as health care professionals.
