UTMB Health Administrative Fellowship Program

At the University of Texas Medical Branch Health System (UTMB Health), we are committed to ensuring the Administrative Fellow gains exposure to the operations of a multifaceted health system and the unique challenges faced by academic medical centers and essential hospitals.


The Administrative Fellowship Program provides recent graduates from an accredited MHA program or similar degree plan with the opportunity to begin a successful career in healthcare administration. The fellow will apply the knowledge gained in the classroom to real-world situations and explore hospital operations through the completion of a wide range of projects, and further develop essential leadership skills through project management. The fellow receives mentorship from the Vice President of Health System Operations & Regional Hospitals.


The application cycle for the 2020-2021 fellowship has closed. Please check back in June 2020 for details of the 2021-2022 fellowship.
