The Administrative Fellowship is part of Beacon Health System's Management Development Program (MDP), a rotational leadership program that builds a foundation for professionals who aspire to be healthcare leaders.
The MDP challenges its associates through multiple 6 month rotations that span up to two years. We work with you in devising these rotations: work experience, career goals, and Beacon's business needs drive rotation selection. MDP associates will have access to, and receive mentorship from, Beacon's Executive Leadership Team, attend leadership meetings, and be involved in system-wide strategic projects. The goal over the course of the program will be for MDP associates to gain the competencies, confidence, and organizational support to fill key leadership positions of the various entities within Beacon Health System.
