About the program

We sponsor one Administrative Fellowship each year for a current Legacy employee or external candidate. Our Administrative Fellowship is a two-year, post-graduate position for recent master's level college graduates with a MHA, MBA with a health care emphasis, MPH, MSN or a master's degree in a related health care clinical field.

Legacy's Administrative Fellowship supports emerging leaders by providing a robust developmental opportunity through one year of structured rotations and a year-long project leadership role.

The fellow will report jointly to the CEO and SVP of Human Resources for the duration of the fellowship for overall guidance. The fellow will collaborate with senior executives to develop goals and success measures for each of the rotations. The fellow will also be exposed to management and senior level decision-making by participating in a variety of leadership meetings (Executive Council, Operations Council, etc).

The application process normally begins each fall.
