At California State University, Fresno (Fresno State), the Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) supports students that aspire to give back to their communities as doctors, dentists, pharmacists, physician assistants, optometrists, and other health care professionals.

Established in 1981, HCOP has impacted hundreds of 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.
