Application Process

Administrative Fellowship Program: Application Process

Qualified applicants have a Masters degree (MBA, MHA, MHSA) or equivalent course work completed from a U.S. based university. Preferred applicants hold a Masters degree from a program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation Healthcare Management Education (CAHME); however, applications from non-CAHME programs will be accepted for review.

Application Requirements

  • Cover Letter (addressed to Gina Cronin, Program Director)
  • Resume
  • Graduate letters of recommendation (one academic and one professional)
  • Official graduate school transcript
  • Official or unofficial undergraduate transcript
  • Two essays, one page maximum (each):
    1. Explain how an administrative fellowship will help you attain your career goals and how a Cleveland Clinic fellowship complements these goals.
    2. While much of health care is still paid via a fee-for-service reimbursement model, the system stands poised to make a major shift to paying for value rather than volume. Of the new payment models currently being discussed, which do you believe will impact revenue most in the short term and what how would you recommend Cleveland Clinic position itself for success in a new payment structure?

Important Dates

  • Complete applications are accepted Friday, August 1 through Monday, September 22, 2014
