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!
