Health Career Opportunity Program Application Information

Admission to our program is highly selective. Application materials must be uploaded before midnight, December 21, 2022. As we always receive a large number of applications, the earlier you submit your materials, the better your chances for acceptance into the program.

Accepted candidates are notified by email in early March. Your emailed acceptance letter includes information about the internship specialties you are assigned to, the location you should report to on your first day, and an employee health form that you must complete before you begin our program. Your employee health form must be signed by a physician or nurse practitioner. Anyone with an incomplete employee health form is dismissed from the program.

Candidates who are not accepted into our program are notified by email in early April. All correspondence, including acceptance and non-acceptance letters, is conducted over email. Please provide us with an email address that you check regularly.

Application Requirements

Please read the following information carefully. We cannot accept incomplete applications.

We require a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.2 for acceptance into the program. You must upload all of the following materials for your application to be considered:

  • a PDF application, filled out digitally or in black ink, that includes a photograph of yourself
  • a personal statement, either one single-spaced page or two double-spaced pages, and no more than 5,300 characters long, about why you want to participate in the program

High school seniors must upload their most recent grades with their applications. College freshmen must upload their high school transcript with their applications, and then their first semester grades when those are available.
