The FHPO program is based on a detailed curriculum, and is designed for high school students interested in health careers. Through the curriculum, students learn fundamental skills required for health careers, expand their understanding of educational requirements in this field, and explore career options. The program includes a service learning component which, as research shows, helps to increase students’ understanding of community needs and commitment to community service. Students have the opportunity to earn two (2) college credits.
This program is operated and overseen by Northeast Oregon AHEC. If you are a high school instructor interested in offering this course, please contact Brittany Hargrove at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit http://www.neoahec.org/programs/future-health-professionals/ .
