Vidant Medical Center Administrative Fellowship Program


Vidant Medical Center offers a 24-month administrative fellowship program that provides post-graduate candidates the opportunity to gain training and management experience in a large and diverse health care system.

Our fellowship is a leadership development experience designed to attract and retain emerging talent in the field of health care administration. Throughout the fellowship experience, fellows will:

  • Lead and participate in projects that will ultimately contribute value to the organization's strategic framework and operational imperatives
  • Gain exposure to key service lines, departments and core functions of the organization
  • Gain extensive exposure to the hospital and health system's executive leadership team and decision making processes
  • Experience and benefit from formal, organizational and professional development opportunities

The senior vice presidents serve as the preceptors for the program and help the fellows reach program and personal goals by providing guidance and feedback on opportunities and progress.

Vidant Medical Center is a $1.5 billion enterprise with a staff of more than 6,500 people dedicated to the inter-related missions of medical education, biomedical research and patient care.
