Fellowship Program

The Treatspace Fellowship Program offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for recent college graduates.

Becoming a Fellow

Providers and patients demand solutions to real-world problems in diverse areas in healthcare, from finance and statistics to mentoring, medical trials, new software tools, project management, business leadership, and many others. For this reason, Treatspace seeks out high-potential developers, designers, and writers, as well as exceptional business talent, to take part in the Treatspace Fellows Program for recent college graduates.

We recruit on college campuses, find exceptional students with high potential, and train them to become innovators.

  • Demonstrated creativity and academic excellence

  • A thirst for knowledge in a broad array of content areas ranging from cytology to social media
