SCOPE accepts applications in two cycles – during fall and winter respectively. We welcome applicant questions at beagooddoctor@gmail.com.

Applications for the Fall 2017 cycle are now open:

Early applications are due by 11:59pm on Friday, October 20th.

Regular applications are due by 11:59pm on Friday, October 27th.

Primary interviews will be on the morning of Saturday, November 11th.

We also host a talk by Dr. Michael McCullough every fall called “Dispelling Pre-Medical Myths” that has impacted significantly the lives of hundreds of pre-medical students, by providing a unique perspective on how to know if medicine is right for you, and how to successfully pursue medicine once you verify that decision. This will be held in October 2017.


Any person who is interested in medicine and is over the age of eighteen is eligible to apply. Members must commit a minimum of 4 quarters to the program, the first two of which must be continuous. In order to earn credit for the program and fulfill our commitment to serving the hospital, members are required to complete 200 hospital volunteer hours though many students volunteer for significantly longer.

SCOPE members are required to attend a minimum of 3 shifts per month of 9 hours per shift. In addition to hospital shifts, SCOPE members are also actively involved in project team work 5 hours a week. These include group project teams accomplishing various medical and non-medical related work including community service involvement, premedical research, and more.

New members are required to attend all volunteer orientations provided by the hospital before beginning training. Each member is required to complete at least two training shifts with an experienced SCOPE member. In addition, they are expected to know all information regarding correct ER procedures presented in the SCOPE Intern Manual. Before anyone begins independent shifts, they must be observed and approved by a current intern or interpreter. Interpreters must also be approved by a professional interpreter employed by the hospital.

Although all are encouraged to apply, we are currently looking to recruit students with the following interests / skills:

  • Fluency in Spanish or Vietnamese
  • Interest in Directorship
  • Web Design skills
  • Experience in graphic design, photography, and videography (work samples required)
