Biomedical students

Marquette is among the nation’s leaders in educating disadvantaged students, and for more than thirty-five years the Health Careers Opportunity Program has been an integral part of Marquette’s mission. Since 1981, the HCOP programs in the School of Dentistry, Department of Physical Therapy, College of Health Sciences, Department of Psychology, and Department of Counselor Education have graduated more than 1,000 health professionals from disadvantaged backgrounds. HCOP aims to increase diversity in the health professions, teach our students to serve the underserved, and support our students in their journey to becoming healthcare professionals.

Our HCOP office is no longer hosting summer programs, but we are continuing our outreach and retention efforts to facilitate entry into Marquette University’s health professional programs.
