The goal of this UH Manoa program is two-fold:
- Provide educational opportunities in health care career fields to individuals who are committed to serving in Hawai‘i and the Pacific
- Build a diverse health care workforce for our community.
HCOP provides an educational pipeline to health careers at the UH Manoa (UHM), Kapi‘olani Community College (KCC), and Leeward Community College (LCC). High school students are exposed to various health career fields and introduced to university academic requirements and campus life through a summer residential program.
There is no cost to participate in HCOP, but space is limited and competition for admission is stiff. Students should diligently prepare a strong personal statement in their application, and seek compelling letters of recommendations.
Applications for the 2013 program should be available soon. Check their website frequently.
