StartUp Health Fellowships place recipients in select organizations focused on digital health and wellness innovation for twelve weeks of immersion and the opportunity to work on a series of projects with teams of entrepreneurs, investors, and advisors.  Fellows may focus this work in one of several areas, including industry research, analytics, data management, and entrepreneur relations.

In addition to work experience, fellows receive a $1,500 award upon the successful completion of the fellowship. 

StartUp Health selects from two to five fellows every twelve weeks to participate in the program, so applications are accepted throughout the year.  The organization encourages applications from individuals who are interested in closing the “health gap” and raising the standard of health care in the U.S.  Ideal candidates are passionate, entrepreneurial, analytical, hard-working, self-motivated, flexible , and eager to learn.
