Northeast Administrative Fellowship Fair

The Northeast Administrative Fellowship Fair is a highly specialized event which provides an opportunity for MPH and MHA students in their final year of study (graduating December 2022, Feb. 2023, or May 2023) to meet with organizations which are offering hospital administration fellowship programs.

Administrative Fellowship Programs are designed to provide hospital administration professionals with essential hospital management and administration training. They are paid, postgraduate, term-limited career opportunities which typically include leadership training, exposure to senior executives, mentorship, and often rotations in different departments of a hospital or health system. To learn more, visit ACHE and NCAF.

This year, the Northeast Regional Administrative Fellowship Fair will return to being an in-person event at Columbia University in New York City.

Date: Friday, Sept. 9, 11:30am-2pm

Location: Columbia University Medical Center campus, 168th St. and Haven Ave (specific location TBA)

Cost: $75 per health system/hospital

Registration: Follow instructions as above, register via Mailman CareerLink.

Students from Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health (including MPH and MHA students) as well as several other area programs (such as MPH, MHA, MPA, and MBA programs with a focus on health administration or healthcare business management) will be invited. Students from other universities must pre-register to be admitted.
