The Tradewell Fellowship


The Tradewell Fellowship offers aspiring healthcare architects exceptional career-building opportunities. Named in honor of the late Gary Tradewell, a former Vice President and Medical Planner, it is the most established fellowship of its kind with over two decades of legacy and counting!

Fellows will be immersed in the field and have the opportunity to continue their education with an individual healthcare architecture research topic of their choice. Other benefits of the Tradewell fellowship include funding to attend a national conference of choice, direct involvement in client user meetings, and travel opportunities. By the end of their fellowship year, participants are well positioned for career advancement and leadership roles.

The Tradewell Fellowship occurs on a June to June cycle in participating healthcare offices.


We have 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 for whom I will design.

Mariah Gresko Tradewell Fellow

The Tradewell Fellowship is an incredible opportunity for me to leverage evidence-based design and research to create therapeutic healing environments, and become responsive to society’s needs for sustainability, efficiency, and resiliency in architecture. I am excited to join EYP's Tradewell Legacy which cultivates creativity and encourages an integrated approach to design for the purposes of enhancing our collective human experience.

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.
