UNC REX Administrative Fellowship Program

Todd L. Peterson Post Graduate Fellowship in Health Care Administration

Next program start date: July 1, 2017

The intention of the Administrative Fellowship is to provide entry-level experience to graduates of master’s degree programs in health care management and clearly related disciplines. Fellows will have exposure to factors affecting the operation of a nationally competitive health care system.

These project-oriented programs are extremely flexible, allowing the Fellow to work in many areas on projects which match the interests of the individual and organizational needs. Though these programs are not “rotational” in nature, selection of projects will expose the Fellow to as many departments and in as much depth as the Fellow aspires.

Sample projects may include chairing teams and/ or participating in:

  • Preparation of Strategic Plans
  • Quality and Process Improvement Initiatives
  • Budget Preparation and Financial Management
  • Certificate of Need Application and Site Planning
  • Cost Benefit Analysis
  • Revenue Cycle Improvements
  • Productivity Management and Utilization Studies
  • Business and Program Development
  • Hospital Community Involvement

Each program is conspicuous in its flexibility, to allow Fellows to pursue and develop his or her own interests. To facilitate this, the Fellows will directly report to:

Chad Lefteris, Vice President of Operations
