- COPE Health Scholars
"I've had numerous shadowing and volunteer experiences where I observed patient care, but they were nothing like the hands-on experience COPE Health Scholars provided me. As a Health Scholar, I was a valuable part of the health care team, providing emotional and medical support for patients. I will never forget the tears and laughter Ii shared with the patients. I am confident my experiences will help me become a leading physician with compassion and skill."
–Eugene Lee, Health Scholar Alumnus
