Roger J. Sherman Administrative Fellowship, 2018-2019

Akron Children’s Hospital offers the Roger J. Sherman Administrative Fellowship, a year-long opportunity for individuals with an interest in healthcare administration to gain experience in leadership and executive-level decision-making.

Initially, the fellow meets with key leaders and directors, and is expected to gain experience in all areas of the hospital. The fellow interacts with all levels of administrative, medical, professional and community groups to learn about the management of an integrated healthcare organization.

The Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of the hospital serve as preceptors.

Fellows complete 3-4 major projects throughout the year, along with multiple smaller projects related to hospital-wide operations or specific department needs. Fellows provide support for the evaluation and/or resolution of hospital regulations, procedures and practices.

The fellowship offers a competitive stipend and benefit package, and is scheduled for a 12-month period.
