Shadowing. With a purpose.


Patient Health Advocates is a collaborative effort between student volunteers and UCLA physicians in order to connect underserved patients to helpful resources in their communities that can improve their lives. 

Volunteers are able to shadow residents at UCLA Children's Health Center and UCLA Med-Peds Comprehensive Care Center (MPCCC) in order to carry out social casework with patients of all income levels, ethnicities, ages, etc.
