The UPMC Administrative Fellowships are two-year programs for graduate level students with a passion for healthcare management. UPMC, a world-renowned health care provider and insurer, is inventing new models of accountable, cost-effective, patient-centered care.

Fellows will spend their first year rotating with executive level leadership, participating in various projects, meetings, and initiatives through a variety of core functional rotations.
