Coordinated involvement of teachers and school administrators is critical for the educational success of students undergoing medical treatment and recovery. Our pediatric medical and supportive care team at City of Hope strongly believes that patients benefit immensely from the continued education and socialization that the school system provides. We look forward to working with you to help these students move forward in their education and development.
Contact our School Program Coordinator with any questions you may have regarding a student undergoing medical treatment or recovery.
City of Hope’s School Program provides the following services to help your students continue in educational success:
