Health Care Administration, Leadership, and Management

Health care administration, leadership, and management represents a body of knowledge that addresses the system-based needs of health care environments. Fellowships in health care administration, leadership, and management integrate learning from medicine, business, public health, communication, computer science, economics, law, and other disciplines in a singular educational program. Health care administration, leadership, and management utilizes a health systems science framework that defines the knowledge and skills required of physician executives, and the academic structures of these Sponsoring Institution-based fellowships.

Fellowship programs in health care administration, leadership, and management include experiential and didactic education that integrates medical knowledge with health systems science, allowing fellows to develop skills of physician executives who manage patient care operations across medical specialties and health care professions. Fellowship accreditation allows flexibility to customize learning experiences aligned with fellows’ career goals as well as with the health care system’s needs for physicians with expertise in health care administration, leadership, and management. Fellowship programs may also include master’s-level coursework and project-based learning, certificates, or other components that emphasize institutional leadership in the administration, leadership, and management of health care and health systems.

Fellows attain competence in essential aspects of administration of complex health care organizations. Fellows gain experience during rotations in the offices of health care executives and other administrative and operational departments of health care facilities. In these settings, fellows learn to manage institutional systems that are critical to health care delivery, including systems critical for the promotion of patient safety, such as those related to event reporting, event investigations, care transitions, and patient safety education. Rotations also train fellows to provide leadership of organizational quality improvement activities in alignment with strategic goals, and through interprofessional team collaboration.

The educational program in health care administration, leadership, and management is configured in 12- and 24-month formats.
