Fellowship

Hospital Medicine Administration and Management is a complex process and requires unique knowledge and skills that are often unattainable in a conventional Hospital Medicine residency. Learning proper Hospital Medicine Administration often takes years of trial and error and on-the-job training. Therefore, we designed this fellowship to allow for the rapid growth of critical Hospital Medicine management skills by completing an intensive one-year curriculum combining academic rigor with community practice set in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Benchmark Hospitalists and Intensivists and Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy have joined together to create the most comprehensive Hospital medicine management program available. The Benchmark-CMU Hospital Medicine Administrative Fellowship combines a stellar academic program with real-time, hands-on leadership experiences. In parallel, fellows will learn industry-leading best practices from award-winning thought leaders in the health care domain and recognized management experts at Benchmark.

Graduates of the fellowship would be expected to pursue leadership positions in Hospital Medicine Administration/Management, and utilize the knowledge and skills afforded them to positively impact practice environments and patient care at a local, state and national level.

We are looking to give the future leaders of Hospital medicine the tools they need to thrive. We are looking for top performing, dedicated and team-oriented applicants to help build on this momentum and create a tradition of excellence in Hospital Medicine management.

Andres Zuleta, MD

Andres Zuleta, MD

Benchmark’s Administrative Fellow 2021

Dr. Andres Zuleta was born and raised in Colombia and has since had the privilege of working in a diversity of clinical settings internationally. His passion for global healthcare and family medicine has given him the tools to be comfortable with any patient in any setting.

“I am proud of being able to do internal medicine, intensive care, and deliveries. It is satisfying when a patient's journey in the hospital goes flawlessly. They improve rapidly, the family feels supported, the patient feels cared for, and the details are ideal. Being a part of that is the most meaningful part of my career. Ultimately, this is why I became a doctor; to have a positive and significant impact on people's life.”

Dr. Zuleta chose the Benchmark Fellowship because he wanted to grow and contribute more to the healthcare industry on not only an administrative level but also an individual level to improve each patient's experience. “I have had the privilege of working on different projects with the Benchmark team already, and I have found this work to be exciting and gratifying."

During her fellowship year, Dr. Camilon worked at multiple Benchmark sites up and down California, learning from a plethora of mentors and engaging in the culture throughout our organization. As she completes the Master’s in Medical Management at Carnegie Mellon University, Dr. Camilon is motivated by the collaboration with her cohort and within Benchmark’s leadership. Dr. Camilon is now the associate director of California Hospital in downtown Los Angeles and continues to work on projects across the organization.

About Benchmark Fellowships

There are two types of fellowship programs after IM or FM residency: ACGME and non-ACGME.

ACGME fellowship tracks include all the subspecialty training programs (ie. Cardiology, Pulmonary, Critical Care, etc.). The ACGME controls the content and sets the standards for these programs because these lead to additional certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine and American Board of Family Medicine.

There are numerous non-ACGME fellowships in IM/FM that offer training and experience in other areas including Hospitalist Administration. These fellowships are ideally tied to an advanced degree integrated into the curriculum, if applicable. This allows participants to incorporate their academic experience with a real-time practice environment and platform.
