Clinical Rotations / Preceptorships
These educational experiences are coordinated as part of a consortium of colleges and health care employers. For more information, contact your academic advisor. Before starting a clinical rotation at MultiCare, you will be required to complete an application, pass a background check and complete our health evaluation. This is to ensure a safe environment for you, our employees and our patients.
Cope Health Scholars
Offered at Deaconess Hospital and Valley Hospital in Spokane, WA, the COPE Health Scholars program provides an immersive experiential education to aspiring health professionals. Students and recent graduates of 2- and 4-year colleges are eligible. Those selected become valuable members of the patient-care team alongside nurses, physicians and allied health professionals in clinical and administrative settings. They receive training to assist in basic patient-care tasks such as bathing, changing and feeding patients as they rotate among the different departments within the hospital(s).
