The Health Coach Program at the UC Riverside School of Medicine is a community-based collaborative aimed at reducing the number of patients with uncontrolled chronic conditions by training health coaches to support patient care by working with integral healthcare teams in a clinical setting.
Our health coaches are volunteers and are pre-medical and pre-health students currently enrolled as juniors and seniors at an undergraduate institution or recent college graduates.
Through weekly follow-ups and continuous communication with their patients’ health care team, health coaches: help patients build progressive goals, become true advocates for their patients, and establish a rapport that allows them to identify patient’s existing barriers to healthier lifestyle habits.
The Health Coach Program, which began in 2013, is a partnership between the UCR School of Medicine and Riverside University Health System.
