The Flint HCOP project will assist Flint Community School District area students (middle school, high school, and University of Michigan-Flint undergraduates) from economically and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. Students will have the opportunity to be trained and exposed to the following health profession disciplines: Health Administration, Health Education, Medical Laboratory Science, Nursing, Radiation Therapy, Anesthesia, Health Education, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Public Health, and Health Informatics. Flint HCOP students will develop the skills, knowledge, and abilities needed to successfully compete for admission, enrollment, progression and graduation from a health professions program. The Flint HCOP project will result in a more competitive applicant pool, increasing diversity among health professionals.
