Anne Arundel Medical Center Administrative Fellowship Program

A Message from President and CEO Victoria W. Bayless

I am pleased to announce that Anne Arundel Medical Center will offer an administrative fellowship for 2018-2019, and I encourage you to apply.  From personal experience beginning my career as an administrative fellow, I appreciate the value of these programs. The fellowship is a one-year immersion into a complex health care system through substantial hands-on projects. 

This fellowship is an outstanding learning and career development opportunity for a recent health care master's graduate/candidate. Our fellows are able to apply their learning and continue to enrich their career in a vibrant and growing medical center.

Vision 2020: Living Healthier Together
I personally serve as mentor and preceptor to the fellow and assure that he/she not only has exposure to all functional areas of the health system, but also to governance through board, Medical Executive Committee, and executive team meetings, as well as planning sessions and retreats. Receiving intensive exposure to health care decision-making, the fellow can apply concepts and skills learned in the classroom to a dynamic health care delivery system. This opportunity includes working on special projects aligned with our strategic vision, such as our annual operating plan and budget.  

I encourage you to review the information below. If you have any questions, please contact our current administrative fellow, Christian Balcer, at or 443-481-1419.

Fellowship Experience

Fellowship Mission and Purpose

The one-year fellowship program is under the direction of president and CEO Victoria Bayless and includes a high degree of involvement by all members of the AAMC executive leadership team and other Leadership Council members. The fellow will take part in substantive hands-on projects that foster an understanding of overall operations of the medical center.

The program emphasizes active involvement and becoming an independent contributing member at AAMC. In addition, fellows are exposed to management decision-making processes though participating in leadership meetings and one-on-one time with AAMC executives and leadership committees. The fellow is also able to establish a professional network outside AAMC through contacts and involvement with professional associations.
