Let’s Support Future Health Care Professionals

It is a little-known fact – we do not produce enough health care professionals to meet our demand.

That is why, nearly forty years ago, the Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) was created. HCOP at Fresno State, is a program that supports students with aspirations of becoming future doctors, dentists, pharmacists, and a myriad of other health care professions.

The program is dedicated to supporting students from economically or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds interested in pursuing a career in the health and allied health professions.

So far, over 750 HCOP alumni have completed their health care education, with nearly 75% returning to practice right here in Central California. Your health care provider may even be a graduate of the HCOP program!  

How can you help? By making a crowdfunding gift today. Your gift to HCOP will provide funds for efforts like, but not limited to:

  • Preparation for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) or the Dental Admission Test (DAT) – approximately $500-3000 for each prep course and test.
  • Student outreach and engagement.
  • Travel for professional development and site visits.
  • Technological and logistical support
  • Unique and unexpected opportunities and needs
