The mission of the HCOP program is to assist under-represented  disadvantaged, and minority students to become more competitive for college and health care careers, increase diversity in the health care professions, and improve the distribution of health care professionals in under-represented areas.


The HCOP programs strive to provide a variety of activities that foster the integration of academics and interpersonal experiences to develop the total person. Students are encouraged to be broadly educated and highly motivated individuals who will continue their moral, cultural, and professional growth as they forge ahead on their life-long educational pathways.
