The fellowship is open to graduate students or residency program graduates. Fellows will take courses on creativity and research methodology, attend a weekly seminar to discuss various contemporary topics in medicine and produce a creative project for publication, public performance or display.

The medical residents also attend a clinic two days a week, where they are actively treating patients and implementing what they learn through the program.
