Fellowship offers executive management training

Washington University School of Medicine is launching a new fellowship designed to give participants an inside look at the operation and governance of an academic medical center.

The Executive Management Fellowship Program is a two-year program that will give fellows experience in human resources, finance, clinical department management, strategic planning, research administration and other areas of operations at the School of Medicine.

In the first year, the fellow will shadow administrators, including Larry J. Shapiro, MD, executive vice chancellor for medical affairs and dean of the School of Medicine; and Richard Stanton, associate vice chancellor for administration and finance; James P. Crane, MD, associate vice chancellor for clinical affairs; Jennifer K. Lodge, Ph.D., associate dean for research; and Alison Whelan, MD, senior associate dean for education. The fellow will also begin a project related to his or her interest area.

In the second year, the fellow will fulfill a management operations role at the School of Medicine.

Eligible applicants should have a master’s in health administration, business administration or public health or another health-care or research-related professional degree.

Applications are encouraged by Oct. 15.
