The Mayo Clinic Administrative Fellowship Program is a prestigious two-year program designed as a fast track to transition top graduate students and recent graduates into leadership positions through focused mentoring and stretch assignments. Administrative Fellows will gain practical experience through direct exposure to and active participation in a variety of administrative activities in preparation for leadership opportunities within Mayo Clinic.

Fellows will partner with team members by fostering an inclusive work environment and respecting others with different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. The program consists of core rotations in areas such as Practice Administration, Education Administration, Research Administration, Finance, Strategy, and Human Resources.
