About the MKM Fellowship Program 

In 2021, MKM launched an annual Fellowship program. MKM Fellows diligently work to analyze the connection between design and well-being, exploring key themes across the care continuum. With quarterly tracks, Fellows gain applied knowledge on how the built environment influences health and well-being across the care continuum. MKM Fellows are deeply involved in the firm’s research initiative by analyzing the leading challenges facing healthcare design across the care continuum. The Fellowship program at MKM provides a unique opportunity for applicants to gain experience understanding the future of healthcare design. Each year is different, and, to an extent, each topic as customized around the specific interests of the applicants.



The ideal Fellowship candidate is an aspiring architect or interior designer in the area of healthcare design. Applicants range from recent graduates to career change candidates who demonstrate devotion and potential to advance the field of healthcare design.



At the commencement of the Fellowship, the applicant must hold at a minimum, a bachelor’s degree in Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Urban Planning, or a related field. Fellows are good writers and exhibit the ability to complete independent research and literature review. Fellows should have a portfolio of completed project work.
