Administrative Fellowship

The Administrative Fellowship at Nicklaus Children's Health System is a one-year opportunity that provides unique and valuable experience for professional growth. The fellowship program establishes a platform for creating meaningful relationships within the organization and the South Florida community. The fellow will be regarded as a member of the senior leadership team and will have access to key decision-making processes through interaction and observation at Leadership, Medical Staff, Community, and Board of Directors meetings.

In addition, the fellow will further enhance their experience and knowledge of Nicklaus Children's Health System and Nicklaus Children's Hospital by conducting core administrative and clinical rotations throughout the organization. The fellow will have the opportunity to rotate through all entities within the health system. Project-related work designed to further develop interpersonal and analytical skills will be customized to meet the interests of the fellow, as well as meeting immediate needs of Nicklaus Children's Health System. Furthermore, the fellow will be assigned reading by the preceptor, Dr. Kini, in order to further develop the knowledge of the fellow.

Dr. Narendra Kini, President and CEO Nicklaus Children's Health System, serves as the preceptor for the fellowship program. The fellow will report directly to Dr. Kini, who will conduct bi-weekly meetings to discuss the progression of the fellowship.
