- Professional development funds to pursue individual outside learning opportunities, including but not limited to conferences, certifications, and courses, etc.

- Participate in personalized and professional growth plans available prior to starting in position. This includes individual regular meetings, leadership assessments and programs, and coaching/mentoring from Site Directors and Preceptors.
Your time in the Administrative Fellowship Program consists of rotations through several key areas at Mayo Clinic. During your rotation planning discussions, you'll be encouraged to envision the full range of experience you hope to gain, so at the end of your fellowship, you'll be a strong candidate for the positions you wish to pursue.
Core Functional Rotations
- Education Administration or Research Administration
- Human Resources
- Practice Administration
These opportunities accommodate your career development interests. Areas are flexible and can be wide-ranging. Some examples include areas such as:
- Center for Digital Health
- Information Technology
- Diversity Equity and Inclusion
Additionally, you may have an Interim Operations Management experience.
The Administrative Fellowship Program's priority is two-fold: to support the long-term leadership needs of Mayo Clinic, serving as a talent pipeline, and a second priority to align the needs and opportunities of each Fellow. With these priorities in mind, we assign you to rotations according to your capabilities, interests and need for development. If you have a strong interest in a specific area, we will make every effort to provide an experience in that area, though we ask you to be flexible and responsive to our organizational needs and opportunities. During your rotation planning discussions, you'll be encouraged to envision the full range of experience you hope to gain so that, at the end of your fellowship, you'll be a strong candidate for the positions you wish to pursue. You are assigned to a base location, where most of your rotation assignments take place. However, we support the opportunity to experience another Mayo Clinic location during your fellowship. Your base location and "traveling" rotation may be a combination of any two location sites taking you to Jacksonville, Florida; Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona; Rochester, Minnesota; or a Mayo Clinic Health System practice located in either Mankato, Minnesota; Eau Claire or La Crosse, WI.
