The MD Anderson Administrative Fellowship is successful in training and developing fellows for their careers after the program. Past fellows have found great opportunities inside and outside of MD Anderson.
Through the eyes of our administrative fellows, MD Anderson is the perfect place to grow. It offers numerous opportunities for development and making significant contributions to our institution. The fellows spend one year employed at MD Anderson working on projects in a focus area they select based on their interests.
Yamilett Medrano joins MD Anderson after completing her Master of Health Administration degree from USC Sol Price School of Public Policy. She is a native of Southern California, raised in the rural town of Perris. Medrano obtained her bachelor's degree from the University of California, Davis.
Her interests lie in advancing effective, efficient, and equitable care for vulnerable and underserved communities by bridging the clinical, administrative, and health policy sectors of healthcare. Medrano's interest stems from her personal upbringing and experience working with Clinica Tepati, National Hispanic Medical Association and several research studies addressing pressing issues impacting the Latino and other underserved communities in California. As a project manager and quality and outcomes analyst at USC she was able to hone her leadership skills and health policy knowledge. She desires to serve all individuals who face health injustices in our nation.
