Administrative Fellowship Program

The University of Colorado School of Medicine (CU SOM) Administrative Fellowship is a 12- month post-graduate training program designed to prepare participants for administrative leadership roles in academic medicine. Fellows will receive comprehensive exposure to the management of a highly ranked academic medical center; working with senior leaders in the School of Medicine, Fellows will observe and participate in decision-making on complex issues involving teaching, research and clinical care.     

This is the inaugural year (2023- 2024) of the CU SOM Administrative Fellowship Program at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.  Campus leaders and staff are excited to start the program and look forward to welcoming the first class of Fellows     in the summer of 2023!
