Health Scholar

The Health Scholar program allows you to gain firsthand experience in both clinical and administrative healthcare 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 healthcare to better prepare you for your healthcare career. This program is offered year-round with enrollment occurring every quarter. Most individuals graduate from the program in 15 months after completing 250 hours of healthcare experience with a commitment of one 4-hour shift per week. For those looking to complete the program faster, we offer 9-month and 3-month options where you will receive priority shift selection in order to finish at an accelerated pace. Additionally, upon graduation, scholars will receive a completion certificate from UCLA’s Executive Programs in Health Policy & Management. The program is offered at various healthcare sites throughout California, Washington, and Hawaii.
