Do all of the letters of recommendation have to be sent in together?
It is acceptable for the recommendation letters to be sent separately. We do ask that you let us know through email or in your application packet that they will be sent separately.
Who is considered a recent graduate?
A recent graduate is an applicant who has graduated within one (1) year of the start date of the fellowship program from an accredited school with an advanced degree and who can demonstrate a history of interest in healthcare.
If I have taken classes at a community college, do I need to have that transcript as well?
We will not need transcripts from a community college if your official undergraduate transcripts have the transferred credits with the letter/number grade present. If your official undergraduate transcript does not have the grades noted, we will need the transcripts from the community college that indicate the grade.
When can I expect to hear back about my application?
Candidates will receive communication regarding their application no later than late October.

Can the administrative fellow select what departments he or she would like to rotate through?

How many fellows do you accept each year?
BCM generally accepts two (2) fellows each year, but it is contingent upon the needs of the organization.
