The Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) aims to increase the diversity of the health care workforce through the recruitment and training of individuals, including non-traditional students and veterans, from educationally or economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
The HCOP grants enable individuals who successfully complete education and training requirements to serve in underserved communities.
The HCOP grants also improve recruitment and retention rates by implementing programs designed to address the academic and social needs of disadvantaged students who are interested in pursuing a career in a health profession.
The HCOP grant program focuses on three key milestones of education:
Eligible applicants are accredited schools of medicine, osteopathic medicine, public health, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, pharmacy, allied health, chiropractic, podiatric medicine, public and nonprofit private schools that offer graduate programs in behavioral and mental health, programs for the training of physician assistants, and other public or private nonprofit health or educational entities which includes community colleges, technical colleges and tribal colleges.
