UCSF Health Administrative Fellowship
Provides future healthcare leaders with a hands-on educational and training opportunity. Our Fellows explore the complex environment of a leading academic medical center in an urban setting.

The Administrative Fellowship program provides postgraduates with project-based work in a variety of functions and areas, and the opportunity for interim management roles. This exposure supports our Fellows as they explore the complex and unique environment within an academic health system. 

UCSF Health—including UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals and UCSF School of Medicine—is globally recognized as a leader in healthcare. UCSF Health delivers patient care through innovative medicine and advanced technology. In addition to world-class medical knowledge, we believe that the compassion of our physicians, nurses and staff is key to our success. We receive countless letters of gratitude from patients and their families, a true measure of the valuable and caring service we provide.
