The Church Health Scholars program is a one-year, service learning fellowship for recent four-year college graduates interested in serving underserved populations and exploring the intersection of faith and health. By providing early exposure to honorable work through the Scholars program, Church Health aims to provide a firm foundation for Scholars to build professional and personal values, work ethic and perspective that forwards our mission to care for one another in our Memphis community.
Since its inception as the volunteer-based Clinic Assistant Program in the mid-1990’s, the Church Health Scholars program has helped participants launch careers as medical providers, community leaders and healthcare professionals.
Scholars are assigned tasks specific to the various areas of Church Health including, but not limited to, Referrals, Clinical Assistants, Dental, and The Well.
Successful applicants should be actively preparing for medical school or further study in an associated field. People interested in these positions are typically interested in pursuing a future degree in various healthcare fields, such as medical school, public health, physician assistant, health administration, nursing, physical therapy and more.
