Cope Health Scholars

COPE Health Scholars

By partnering with COPE Health Scholars, MultiCare is able to offer an immersive experiential education program for aspiring health professionals at Deaconess Hospital and Valley Hospital in Spokane, WA. We currently offer two programs – the Health Scholars program for students accepted to, enrolled in or graduated from local 2-year or 4-year colleges and universities, and the Junior Health Scholar Program for high school students between the ages of 16-18.

About the Health Scholar Program

The Health Scholar program is for students accepted to, enrolled in or graduated from local 2-year or 4-year colleges and universities. As a Health Scholar, you will gain firsthand experience in both clinical and administrative health care settings and become an integral part of the care delivery team. You will assist with basic care for patients alongside nurses, physicians and other members of the care delivery team, and have opportunities to learn the “business” of health care, preparing you for your health care career.
