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.
Scholars must be accepted to, enrolled in or graduated from an accredited college or university, and be at least 18 years old.
Pre-health students & graduates (e.g. pre-med, pre-nursing, health administration)
Professional school students & graduates (e.g. nursing, physician assistant, allied health)
Upon completion, scholars will receive a completion certification from UCLA’s Executive Programs in Health Policy & Management.
