health careers Opportunity program (HCOP)

Meharry Medical College is now accepting applications for the 2015 Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) sponsored Ob/Gyn Summer Mentorship Program.

This six-week program has a curriculum designed to introduce Nashville-area high school students (rising juniors and seniors only) to the health care field by pairing them with physicians, residents, and nursing staff in clinical settings.

The program runs from 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. June 15 to July 24, 2015 on the Meharry campus. Although this is an Ob/Gyn sponsored program, physicians from eight separate departments in Nashville General Hospital and Meharry Medical College take time to instruct the students on what they do daily. Students may witness operations, patient visits, and hear doctor-patient interaction first-hand.

Please note: This is a day program only. There are no student residential facilities. Non-Nashville-area residents should only consider applying if the student has relatives who will host them during their time in Nashville and provide transportation to and from campus.

All applications must be postmarked no later than May 8, 2015. For the list of requirements and more information, please download our brochure, email us at or call 615-327-6284.
