DVACO Administrative Fellowship

Role and Responsibilities
The DVACO Administrative Fellowship is a 1-year program designed for recent graduates of MHA, MBA, MPH, MS-POPH, or similar healthcare programs to build a foundation for a career in population health. The position emphasizes skills related to population health management, healthcare business planning, and leadership skills. Based on interests, the program may include project-based rotations through various DVACO departments including Care Coordination, Practice Transformation, Data Analytics, Post-Acute Care and Clinical Quality, and the opportunity to become acquainted with each of our member hospitals.

In addition to these rotations, the Fellow can tailor his/her experience through various projects related to topics such as quality oversight, data reporting, performance improvement, physician engagement, informatics, network development, and contract/payer relations. This design gives the Fellow the opportunity to build fundamental communication, analytic, and problem-solving skills as well as an understanding of the ACO environment and population health strategies. To complement on-the-job training, fellows are involved in Board and other Administrative meetings. Fellows report directly to Joel Port, SVP, Business and Network Development.
