Educational Programs Are Ideal Avenues for Health Systems to Connect with Their Communities

COPE Health Solutions engages health systems to design innovative educational experiences for aspiring health care professionals. These programs are an ideal avenue for providers to build meaningful relationships with community members and position their health system as the provider of choice within their service area.

Students engage with their program facility through on-site training and hands-on rotations through the inpatient and outpatient settings. Most students complete the program in approximately one year, during which time they build a loyalty to the facility and integrate the mission and values of the health system into their professional doctrine.

The depth to which these programs can change lives of students is truly astounding; Naima is one such student. Having had a difficult upbringing, hospitals were often a source of refuge for Naima. When she moved to Seattle for college, she felt detached from the healthcare system and had difficulty engaging. One year ago, Naima discovered the Health Scholars program at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, WA and soon became one of our most successful program participants. Only about halfway through her program, she is already a shining example of the impact we hope to make on young people, and brings that same impact to patients at the hospital where she serves. Read her moving story here.
