DUHS Administrative Fellowship Programs

The Duke University Health System (DUHS) Administrative Fellowship Programs offer unique opportunities for post-graduate training in healthcare administration. The goal of the Administrative Fellowship Programs is to provide individuals with exceptional leadership training and a strong foundation in academic medicine.

Duke University Health System offers three fellowship programs, each of which is two-years:

  • Duke University Hospital Administrative Fellowship
  • Duke Revenue Cycle & Financial Management Fellowship
  • Duke Primary Care Physician Network Management Fellowship

The Duke University Hospital Administrative Fellowship provides a comprehensive exposure to hospital operations in one of the nation’s leading hospitals.  In addition, Fellows have access to a broad range of services and sites that are part of Duke Health. During the first year, the Fellows participate in structured rotations throughout the hospital and health system, while also completing a diverse range of management projects.  During the second year, the Fellows pursue an area of interest based on personal and professional goals, as well as organizational opportunities.  Throughout the fellowship, Duke University Hospital Fellows gain invaluable experience in hospital operations through exposure to Senior Administration, significant project work and structured rotations.

The Duke Revenue Cycle & Financial Management Fellowship offers the opportunity to gain in-depth experience and knowledge of how revenue cycle operations management impacts all levels across the health system. Efficient revenue cycle management is vital to health system sustainability and affects many aspects of hospital and clinical operations, such as clinical care-giving and documentation, hospital admissions, and the patient experience. In the first year, the Fellow gains exposure to core revenue cycle competencies while developing relationships across the Duke Health entities. During the second year, the Fellow works closely with senior leadership within specific departments and service lines to develop competencies that will prepare the fellow for a post-fellowship position in their area of interest. Throughout the fellowship, the Revenue Cycle Fellow will gain familiarity with diverse revenue cycle organizational issues in the health system and gain practical administrative experience via involvement in various projects and rotations.

The Duke Primary Care Physician Network Management Fellowship offers the opportunity to expand your knowledge of the primary care field while gaining valuable experience and receiving personal mentoring from the Senior Leadership Team. During the first year, Fellows gain exposure to physician practice and network management through shadowing opportunities and meaningful project work that pairs practice management concepts with strategic network and Health System initiatives. The second year provides participants with the opportunity to align their professional goals and interests with the priorities of the organization while working closely with senior network leadership.
