About Us

The Science and Health Careers Information Center (SHCIC) provides information on health professional careers (medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry, etc.), and programs and majors in the College of Science and Mathematics (CSM) (e.g., environmental science, biotechnology, clinical lab science, high school science and math teaching, biology, chemistry, computer science, earth science, physics, and psychology). The Center's goals are to provide general pre-health and science program and career information, help students make appointments with college pre-health and program advisors, and guide students to the appropriate college and/or university support services.

The Center is also home of the Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) and the Pre-Health Scholars Program (PHS), joint programs of the University of California San Francisco, Latino Center for Medical Education and Research and California State University, Fresno, College of Science and Mathematics. HCOP and PHS provide wide-ranging support for students interested in careers in the health professions and are open to students from educationally or economically disadvantaged backgrounds who also meet GPA and other program requirements.
