At the core of the fellowship is meaningful project work. Following the orientation period, the Fellow and preceptors will review project proposals to identify those that benefit the Fellow’s development. Should the Administrative Fellow have particular interests, projects can usually be identified or sought out to satisfy these interests. Every attempt is made to identify projects that will benefit both the Cleveland Clinic and the Fellow, with an emphasis on a well-rounded project foundation. This project foundation includes work in areas such as: continuous improvement; clinical and non-clinical operations; strategy; quality and patient safety; cost repositioning.

Additionally, Cleveland Clinic has a strong and expanding international presence, including locations in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE); Toronto, Canada; and a micro office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In effect, incoming fellows also will have the opportunity to work on projects with international components throughout the year, and may have opportunities to travel to our international locations as projects require.
