COPE Health Scholars


Health systems are increasingly aware of the need to cultivate a well-trained and prepared workforce that meets the current and future demands of the evolving health care system. Forming integrated care teams necessary to tackle the current and future challenges of health care requires an ample supply of culturally and linguistically competent, technically capable and patient experience-focused health care workers.

With these challenges and needs in mind, COPE Health Solutions has partnered with the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health’s Executive Programs in Health Policy and Management to provide training programs that give high school students, college students and career changers the opportunity to learn a patient-centered approach to care, advance their professional school candidacy, build a foundation for their careers in health care, and nurture lifelong relationships through the COPE Connect alumni network.


We are experts in:

  • Turn-key operation
  • Tailored workflow design
  • Recruitment focused on diversity and linguistic competency reflective of local community
  • Deep relationships with local academic institutions
  • Comprehensive skills training aligned with the organizations’ mission, values, and strategy
  • Pre-deployment competency evaluation
  • Focus on the student and patient experience
  • Replicable and sustainable
  • Exposure to hard-to-fill positions
  With the collaborative partnership of COPE Health Solutions, we were able to optimize the overall patient experience. Their work on our design of new initiatives was instrumental and invaluable, and as a result, we continue to receive national recognition towards our journey to transform to a culture of a healing hospital.
