Administrative Fellowship Program
This program exposes two Administrative Fellows to strategic planning initiatives
and daily operations in all departments of an urban hospital. Under the
direction of the Senior Leadership team at Jersey City Medical Center
(JCMC), we are committed to enriching the Fellows’ learning experience
through departmental rotations and project management. The Fellowship
mentors will work with the Fellows to ensure projects are selected with
their interest, experience, and organizational needs in mind.

II Trauma Center located on a 15-acre campus overlooking the New York
Harbor and Liberty State Park. The hospital serves as a regional teaching
hospital and provides the highest level of care for women and infants,

administration. Examples of rotations include:

During each rotation, the Fellow receives an overview of the department’s
operations, challenges, and initiatives. The Fellow has the opportunity
to work with that department on projects that are aligned with their interests
and develop core competencies.
Interacting with the Senior Leadership team is an active part of the Fellowship.
Hospital Directors serve as mentors for the Fellows, providing professional
development and the opportunity to observe high-level strategic meetings.

the management of a healthcare facility;
