Selection Process

A selection committee representing health care leaders from across U of U Health reviews all fellowship applications. Once applications are reviewed, the selection committee selects a number of applicants for phone interviews. Of those candidates, the most qualified will be invited for on-site interviews to meet with U of U Health's executive leadership team.

The final selection and offer will be extended after the on-site interview and no later than early November. One individual is selected as the 2024-2045 U of U Medical Group administrative fellow.
