The Tradewell Fellowship

Focused, fast-track exposure to collaborating with clients and thought leaders positions tomorrow's medical planners and designers for rapid career advancement to design, build, and heal.

Named in honor of the late Gary Tradewell, a former Vice President and Medical Planner, the Tradewell Fellowship offers aspiring healthcare architects exceptional career-building opportunities. Established in 1997, the fellowship provides one year's employment with EYP, as well as funding to attend a national healthcare conference. By the end of their fellowship year, participants are well positioned for career advancement and leadership roles.

Check back this Fall for information on applying for the 2020 - 2021 Tradewell Fellowship.

We have such a great responsibility as healthcare designers; our designs affect the lives of so many during some of their most vulnerable moments, making what we do that much more important. I believe that EYP’s Tradewell Fellowship will grant me the opportunity to accelerate my post-graduate education and give me the tools and experience that I need to create the greatest positive impact in the lives of those whom I will design for.

    Guidance and Inspiration

    Since the establishment of the Fellowship, five successive Curators have advanced Gary Tradewell's vision of healing environments, collaborative design, mentorship, and knowledge sharing. The Curator is responsible for mentoring the Fellow, coordinating project assignments, and organizing Tradewell events and deadlines, and representing the Fellowship within and outside the firm. Each Curator embodies the firm's commitment to excellence through guiding and inspiring tomorrow's thought leaders.
