The Fred Hutch Administrative Fellowship Program offers early careerists an opportunity to develop their leadership style and to use their skills and competencies at one of the top cancer programs in the nation, and the top ranked cancer hospital in the WWAMIO region. The fellow will be placed in Service Line Management, which is within the strategy and business development arm of the institution, giving the fellow exposure across the care continuum and experience with executive and clinical leadership. Project-based in nature, the fellowship enables the fellow and the designated Service Line Manager preceptor to determine the appropriate project portfolio that ensures a learning environment and the ability to translate academic theory into practice. The program is two years in length and aims to identify and grow promising candidates for future leadership positions.


Candidate applications will need to include a resume, personal statement or cover letter, 3 letters of recommendation (at least one academic and one professional), and a diversity statement (instructions below).

There may be opportunities to focus more time within certain groups to foster deeper stakeholder relationship-building and service line expertise.
