Career Opportunities

The Health Occupations and Professions Exploration (HOPE) program is a career pathways program designed to aid under-represented students in exploring careers in healthcare. During HOPE, middle and high school students are encouraged to examine over 60 healthcare career choices through interactive activities and conclude the session by mapping their way into a career that interests them the most. There are *hundreds* of different careers in healthcare. The Career Pathways team has created a handy set of Career Posters for about 60 careers in healthcare, which can be found at These posters include information about what a career does, how much they make, and the sort of education you need to get into it.
