Administrative Fellowship Program - Graduates - Main Line Health
Since 2007, the Administrative Fellowship at Main Line Health, located in the western
suburbs of Philadelphia, has been providing recent graduates the opportunity to join Main
Line Health’s administrative team and gain practical, hands on experience in a suburban,
community-based health system. Over a 12 month period, the Fellow will have exposure to
a wide range of projects and opportunities in which they will gain exposure to areas such as
corporate structure, quality, performance improvement, marketing, finance, front line
operations, and high-level strategic planning. The Fellow will explore various project
opportunities with Senior Executives and leaders across the system, working with their
preceptors in the selection of project work to align with the Fellow’s goals and the
organization’s needs. These projects fine tune and develop the Fellow’s leadership skills,
interpersonal communication, and decision-making skills. In addition to project work, the
Fellow will attend Senior Management and Board meetings, which will aid in the
understanding of a complex health care system. Preceptors include Jack Lynch, the
President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Main Line Health, and Phil Robinson, the
President of Lankenau Medical Center.
The Administrative Fellowship is a combination of structured rotations and Fellow-directed
activities. The first few months are spent rotating with both system and hospital leadership.
Rotations include finance, marketing and business development, quality and patient safety,
compliance, and supply chain management, as well as exposure to core hospital
operations. The Fellow will also serve as administrator-on-call and become actively involved
in the day to day operations of one hospital. Throughout the year, the Preceptors will
provide guidance and feedback through regular meetings.
The 2022—2023 Administrative Fellowship recruitment process will
begin in August 2021.
