I am pleased to announce that Anne Arundel Medical Center will offer an administrative fellowship for 2013-2014, and I encourage you to apply. From personal experience, beginning my career as an administrative fellow, I appreciate how valuable these programs are. The fellowship is a one-year immersion into a complex healthcare system through rotations and substantial hands-on projects.
This is an outstanding learning and career development opportunity for a recent healthcare master's graduate/candidate to apply their learning and continue to enrich his/her 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 s/he 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. The fellow receives intensive exposure to healthcare decision-making and has the opportunity to apply concepts and skills learned in the classroom to a dynamic healthcare delivery system and work on special projects aligned with our strategic vision, annual operating plan and budget. There is an emphasis on active involvement and becoming an independent contributing member to the system.
I encourage you to review the information below. If you have any questions, please contact our current administrative fellow, Brandon Rahn at brahn@AAMC.org or 443-481-1419.
The one-year fellowship program is coordinated under the direction of President and CEO Tori 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 a rotational program with substantive hands-on projects that foster an understanding of overall operations of the Medical Center.

Administrative Fellow 2013-2014
Brandon Rahn joined Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC) as its second administrative fellow. An Illinois native, Rahn relocated to Annapolis after graduating with a master's degree in health administration from St. Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri. Rahn graduated from Southern Illinois University in 2011.
Rahn left the midwest last summer to intern in Santa Rosa, California at St. Joseph Health System. Most recently, he was the assistant project manager with the Missouri Health Information Exchange Evaluation Team. He is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives and Healthcare Financial Management Association.
In today’s changing healthcare environment, an administrative fellowship is an exciting way to expand knowledge in an increasingly complex field while gaining valuable hands-on experience,” says Tori Bayless, president and CEO of AAMC. “Successful organizations are responsible for contributing toward training the next generation of healthcare leaders, to grow and advance the healthcare workforce.”
The administrative fellowship program, developed and sponsored by Bayless, seeks to engage promising young leaders in healthcare administration by offering them a year-long, residential workplace program in healthcare settings. The fellowship provides education about the strategy and operations of the Medical Center through departmental and subsidiary rotations as well as substantive hands-on project work.
