Health Scholar Program (test 2)

Health Scholar Experience

As a Health Scholar, you’ll gain clinical experience, make a difference in the lives of patients and become an integral part of the patient care team. Working side by side with nurses and physicians, you’ll provide basic care for patients. You can help patients walk, feed them when they can’t feed themselves, assist with checking vitals and much more. After an initial 30-hour intensive training program, you will begin clinical rotations in a variety of areas at the program site. At some sites, administrative rotations are also available. See our program locations for details on opportunities available at each site.
