Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago – ranked as one of the best children’s hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report – provides superior pediatric care in a setting that offers the latest benefits and innovations in medical technology, research and family-friendly design. As the largest freestanding pediatric provider in the region, with a 135-year legacy of excellence, Lurie Children’s is an academic pediatric healthcare leader committed to providing unsurpassed healthcare for children and developing future healthcare leaders.


    Our Administrative Fellowship Program fulfills that commitment by providing analytical, financial and leadership experiences to diverse, emerging healthcare leaders in a dynamic environment that is committed to achieving a healthier future for every child.


    Fellowship Description

    The one year administrative fellowship is a project-based program which allows the fellow the opportunity to gain exposure to all facets of the organization. The administrative fellow works closely with senior leadership teams on projects that address operational and strategic initiatives. The project-based structure allows the fellow to tailor the experience to their interests while supporting the mission of Lurie Children’s.


    Along with the knowledge gained through working on projects throughout the fellowship year, the fellow will also attend leadership and board meetings in order to gain a firm understanding of the strategic goals and vision for Lurie Children’s. The fellow is also encouraged to supplement their experience with additional meetings, shadowing and other activities across the hospital.



    The objectives of the fellowship include:

    • Contribute to the development and implementation of the organization’s strategic goals by participating in department-wide projects and executive team initiatives
    • Enhance leadership experience by managing projects, participating in senior leadership and committee meetings, and engaging in shadowing opportunities
    • Identify and evaluate areas of interest within pediatric healthcare and academic medicine
    • Develop professional relationships with the senior executive team and other leaders within the medical center


    The administrative fellow reports to Katie Bohling, Senior Director for Telemedicine, and Roger Jones, Senior Director for Project Management Office. Michelle Stephenson, Chief Operating Officer, acts as the Executive Sponsor for the administrative fellowship program. All leaders provide ongoing support and guidance for professional development and career advancement throughout the fellowship.
