2021-2023 Southern California Administrative Fellows

The Southern California Administrative Fellowship is a 2-year program focused on health care operations, with three 8-month rotations at different medical centers and regional offices.

The Southern California Administrative Fellowship is a 2-year program focused on health care operations, with three 8-month rotations at different medical centers and regional offices. Fellows rotate through the following entities:

  • Kaiser Foundation Hospitals (KFH)
  • Southern California Permanente Medical Group (SCPMG)
  • Southern California Regional Offices in Pasadena, CA

Rotation preceptors are the Senior Vice President & Area Manager (KFH) and the Chief Administrative Officer (SCPMG), which allows fellows to be exposed to the highest level of leadership in the organization. The fellowship is supported by regional directors that support the fellows throughout the entire program.

The Southern California program structure is unique because the cohorts actively recruit and are made up of traditional Administrative Fellows (MHA/MBA, etc.), RN Fellows, and Military Fellows. The diversity of the cohort creates a wide range of perspectives and interests that are integrated into the organization.

There are 15 Kaiser Permanente Medical Centers in Southern California. Fellows may rotate across any of the following geographic regions:

  • Coachella Valley
  • Inland Empire
  • Kern County
  • Metro Los Angeles/West Los Angeles
  • Orange County
  • San Diego County
  • Tri-Central Area
  • West Ventura/Valleys

The project work of the fellows is based on their interests and the strategic goals of their respective medical centers. This allows the fellow to have flexibility in their experience as well as the ability to contribute to high-priority initiatives that have high exposure and visibility.

Examples of projects completed by the 2018-2019 fellows include:

  • Decreasing sepsis rates
  • Telehealth pilot
  • Opening of state-of-the-art behavioral health facility
  • Flu planning
  • Interim Assistant Department Administrator
  • Interim Director of Care Experience
  • Interim Administrative Services Supervisor
  • Interim EVS Manager
  • Para-operative services and education/workflow redesign
  • Staff and employee engagement initiatives

Former fellows can be found in positions throughout the entire organization, at the medical center, regional office, and national office.

Examples of positions fellows have transitioned into post-fellowship:

  • Department Administrator
  • Assistant Department Administrator
  • Service Unit Manager
  • Group Practice Lead
  • Executive Consultant
  • Senior Consultant
  • Project Manager
