Administrative Fellowship Program

The Administrative Fellowship at Emerson Health System is a one-year opportunity specifically within Emerson Practice Associates (EPA). EPA serves as Emerson Health System’s employed medical group. You will report to the senior executive of physician practice management.

Throughout the experience, you will have a comprehensive, overarching view into the management of a hospital-employed medical group. You will have the opportunity to observe the operations of primary care, medical subspecialty, surgical subspecialty and urgent care practices, as well as work cohesively with billing staff to gain insight into the revenue cycle and attend key administrative meetings with management staff. Furthermore, you will acquire fundamental leadership skills such as physician communication, staff assessment, project management acumen, and experience interviewing potential candidates for employment.

Previous fellowship projects and opportunities include urgent care market analysis, physician communication systems, vendor and consulting firm interaction, board presentation preparation, physician onboarding, assisting in the opening of new practices, contract analysis, performance improvement, and composition of business plans for new medical technologies.

Additionally, you will serve as a critical member of the EPA team as you develop relationships and interact with key Emerson staff and operate within a complex, highly-matrixed environment of a well-recognized and respected health system.
