FAQ

Am I eligible?

If your graduate degree is conferred between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018, you are eligible to apply for Stanford Children’s Health’s Administrative Fellowship Program (fellowship beginning in September 2018). 

If your degree was conferred prior to July 1, 2017, then you are no longer eligible for the Stanford Children’s Health Administrative Fellowship Program.

An MHA, MPH, MBA or a related masters degree from an accredited program are all eligible to apply.

Who oversees the Administrative Fellowship Program?

Chris Dawes is the executive sponsor of the administrative fellowship program. The administrative fellows will report directly to the department of Enterprise Learning and Development as this department is equipped to handle all things programmatic for the fellow. Additionally, the rotation sponsor, supervisor, and mentor will all support the fellow throughout the duration of the assigned project or rotation length.

Can the fellowship be used as a residency placement in order to complete my master’s degree?

No, the fellowship is a postgraduate position and prospective fellows must have completed the requirements for their degree before beginning the program in September 2018.

Is the Administrative Fellowship a paid position?

Administrative Fellows are considered full-time employees and are paid a salary for the 2-year duration of the program. As such, the fellow is eligible for employee benefits including health insurance coverage, retirement savings, and paid time off.

When can I expect to hear about advancements in the application process?

The Stanford Children’s Health Administrative Fellowship Program adheres to the NCAF application timeline, and as such, application materials will be due by October 2, 2017 and a final decision will be made on November 13, 2017.

Upon completion, will the administrative fellowship lead to a position with Stanford Children’s Health?

While it is the hope and intent that a fellow will continue working for Stanford Children’s Health, there is no formal obligation from either party to either offer or accept a position post-fellowship.

How many fellows do you accept each year?

We accept one fellow each year to complete a 2-year program (i.e. September 2018 – September 2020).
