UPMC Enterprises Administrative Fellowship Track

About the UPMC Enterprises Administrative Fellowship Track

At UPMC Enterprises, our mission is to create products and businesses that make Life Changing Medicine happen. Our work impacts the lives of patients in meaningful, lasting ways and is integral to the development of growing, thriving businesses.

The Enterprises Administrative Fellowship is a two-year executive leadership development program for graduate level students with a passion for healthcare business development, strategy, product management, data analytics, and digital health/user experience design.

During the Enterprises Administrative Fellowship program, fellows will gain exposure to all areas of the Enterprises division before completing rotations in other divisions. Enterprises works closely with leadership teams in HSD, ISD, and corporate, so focused experience outside of Enterprises prepares a Fellow to return to Enterprises in their second year with valuable knowledge and skills in support of pursuing a role at Enterprises.

Below are possible rotations during the first year in the Enterprises Division Track:

  • Hospital Operations

These rotations are structured similarly to Health Services Division Fellowship Track, but are flexible to meet a Fellow’s interests and career goals. Year One includes an optional rotation.
