MedStar Health Fellowship Brown Bag Information Session
Thursday, March 6 at noon in OCS (McDonough 328)
Students interested in the MedStar fellowship specifically, or wanting to learn more about healthcare and/or in-house opportunities, should plan to attend a brown bag lunch with Daniel Honberg (GULC ’13). Daniel is the current fellow at MedStar Health, and is joining us to share his insights on the job search process, the fellowship, and more broadly on careers in healthcare and in-house settings.
MedStar Health is pleased to sponsor a fellowship for a 2014 Georgetown University Law Center graduate with a demonstrated interest in healthcare law and nonprofit organizations. MedStar is the Baltimore-Washington region’s leading nonprofit health system, with 10 of the area’s most respected hospitals and many other diversified health services.
The fellowship is designed to foster the development of outstanding law school graduates committed to a career in health law. MedStar's goal is to offer meaningful work opportunities that expose fellows to the skills they will need to succeed as attorneys and specifically as in-house counsel.
The fellow will be responsible for providing support to staff attorneys on designated projects, including any work that would be assigned to lawyers in the department. The fellow could work on issues related to contract review and negotiation, regulatory compliance, internal investigations, litigation management, medical malpractice defense, corporate transactions, and governance. The fellow will also have the opportunity to participate in leadership-level discussions and committees regarding the myriad strategic and operational legal issues affecting the system.
The fellow will be based in the Legal Department in Arlington, Virginia, but will also have the opportunity to spend time working in Corporate Risk Management, Hospital Risk Management, the Office of Compliance and Business Integrity, the Privacy Department, and the Office of the Secretary. Some of these rotations will be based in the MedStar corporate office in Columbia, Maryland. Longer rotations and/or assignments in areas of special interest may be arranged.
In addition, the fellow will work closely with MedStar’s attorneys and a broad array of leading law firms, giving the fellow a chance to engage in career networking. Pursuant to this goal, the fellow will have an opportunity to spend at least one month working for a law firm that serves as MedStar’s outside counsel.
Fellows are chosen based on academic performance, demonstrated commitment to healthcare law, and overall excellence. We are looking for candidates with excellent verbal and written communications skills, the ability to take initiative, attention to detail, time management and organizational abilities, strong problem solving skills, and the ability to work both collaboratively and independently.
The fellowship runs from September 1, 2014 through August 31, 2015.
Salary: The fellow will be paid an annual salary of $60,000 and will be eligible for benefits offered to full-time employees, including Paid Time Off, Paid Holidays, and Health Insurance benefits.
Application Instructions: Interested candidates should apply online via Symplicity, job posting # 31707 by April 1, 2014.
Hosted by Women's Legal Alliance (WLA) and Gibson Dunn, WLA's biggest event of the spring will allow you to mix and mingle with representatives from top firms in the DC area and learn firsthand about life in a firm and how the many firms you will meet at EIW support their women attorneys. Junior and mid-level women from many firms will attend this fun, low-pressure event. Appetizers, wine, and other refreshments will be served. Dress is business casual.

Unlike their biglaw counterparts, small and mid-sized firms may not adhere to a rigid recruiting schedule. Rather, these employers rely on students finding and networking with them. Come learn from counselors who have worked in, recruited for, and/or reached out to small firms some best practices for connecting to employers, as well as what qualifications to highlight to make you stand out in this sector.
Post Graduate Public Interest Fellowship Overview & Panel
Monday, March 3 at 4:00pm in McDonough 437
Are you a rising 3L interested in a post-graduate fellowship? Or a rising 2L curious about how your summer internships might lead to one? Or a 2014 graduate with a judicial clerkship wondering if you are still eligible to apply for fellowships next year? If so, we invite you to attend this important fellowship overview session in advance of the individual fellowship information programs scheduled later in the spring semester. Watch for information on the Skadden, Equal Justice Works and Women's Law and Public Policy Fellowship sessions coming in March and April.
Fellowships provide some of the best entry-level opportunities to launch a public interest career. What are these fellowships? How can you apply for one and how might they shape your future? Join us for a brief overview of the types of post graduate fellowships and a panel of Georgetown Law students and alums who will describe their application process and help you determine if a project fellowship is the right path for you.
