The Johns Hopkins Administrative Fellowship curriculum is composed of four- and two-week rotations across Johns Hopkins Medicine. Each rotation focuses on providing fellows project-based work, shadowing opportunities with department leaders, and networking opportunities.

Following the completion of the core rotations, the last five months of the Administrative Fellowship are open for elective rotations throughout Johns Hopkins Medicine. Availability of elective rotations are subject to the fellows' interests and also the availability of the division/department desired. Throughout the entire program, fellows are connected with alumni fellows who shares their career experiences and provide guidance for young professionals in healthcare.
