Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP)

We are very excited that you are visiting our website. At California State University, Fresno, the Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) prepares diverse students from disadvantaged backgrounds to address the current and future demands of health care for this growing population.

Since its inception in 1981, HCOP has changed the lives of over 22,000 high school and first-generation college students who grow to shape the health of our region.  By providing a nurturing approach and a “home away from home,” students receive the guidance and support necessary to enroll in professional health graduate schools and pursue their journey as aspiring health professionals.
