The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), located in Seattle, Washington, is part of a dynamic collaboration among three organizations known nationally and internationally for their patient care and research: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's. Over the past 25 years, these institutions have worked together to support their mission of adult and pediatric oncology patient care services, research and education.
The SCCA Administrative Fellowship Program offers early careerists an opportunity to develop their leadership style and to use their skills and competencies at one of the top 10 cancer programs in the nation, and the top ranked cancer hospital in the WWAMIO region. The fellow will be placed in Service Line Management, the strategy and business development arm of the institution, giving the fellow exposure across the care continuum and experience with executive and clinical leadership. Project-based in nature, the fellowship enables the fellow and the designated preceptor to determine the appropriate project portfolio through a concentration option that ensures a learning environment and the ability to translate academic theory into practice. The program is one year in length and aims to identify and grow promising candidates for future leadership positions.
Applications will be accepted from Aug. 1 through September 30th.
The fellowship offers a rotation-based experience with projects geared towards the fellows interests and needs of the enterprise. This structure aims to provide a well-rounded understanding of the organization and disease-specific programs. Service line exposure may include Blood and Marrow Transplant, Breast, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary, Head and Neck, Immunotherapy, Heme/Heme Malignancies, Melanoma/Skin, Phase I, Renal, Sarcoma and Thoracic Programs.
As the Service Line Manager role spans organizations and departments, the fellowship offers an opportunity to work on initiatives cross-institutional and cross-departmental in nature. The fellow is exposed to different managerial and leadership styles, helping to promote development and understanding of their own personal style.
Education Applicants must have received or be expected to receive an MHA, MPH, MBA or similar masters degree in a related field of study from an accredited graduate program prior to expected start date.

The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance was incorporated in 1998 as a separate, jointly governed non-profit that included the cancer programs of three partners. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is a cancer treatment center that unites doctors from Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, University of Washington Medical Center, and Seattle Children’s. The purpose of this organization is to provide state-of the-art patient and family centered care; support the conduct of cancer clinical research and education; enhance access to improved cancer interventions; and advance the standard of cancer care regionally and beyond. The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Northwest, and according to the National Cancer Data Base, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance patients in general have better survival rates than patients treated at other cancer treatment centers.
