The Administrative Fellowship at Providence offers masters-prepared individuals a 12-month opportunity to develop their management and leadership skills through a broad array of learning experiences. Fellows will receive extensive mentorship from senior leaders as they tackle challenging, highly visible projects in their areas of interest. They will also cultivate a strong microscale and macroscale understanding of Providence’s impact on the surrounding community. We are looking for four (4) highly motivated, self-driven individuals interested in Health Care Management & Administration, who will have either received their master’s degree by July of next year or who will receive their master’s degree upon completion of a fellowship.


There are two fellowship tracks that are available for this upcoming fellowship cycle.

  • Physician Enterprise: emphasis on ambulatory care and medical groups across the system, including our 7 states that we serve
  • SoCal Region: exposure to entire network of care, including acute care among our 11 ministries across Los Angeles and Orange County


Two fellows will work under Physician Enterprise with: Dr. David Kim, Chief Executive Providence Physician Enterprise; and Jill Duplechan, Chief Executive Orange County/High Desert. Two fellows will work at our Southern California Regional office with: Kevin Manemann, Providence Southern California Region CEO; and Nate Husmann, Providence Southern California CFO. Ultimately, fellows will be given the autonomy and support they need to tap into their full potential and become successful healthcare professionals.
