Kearney Health Opportunities Program (KHOP)

The Kearney Health Opportunities Program is a cooperative program between the University of Nebraska at Kearney and the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The purpose of the program is to recruit and educate students from rural Nebraska who are committed to returning to rural Nebraska to practice healthcare. This program represents a commitment and dedication to the education of Nebraskans and quality health care for citizens of the state. KHOP will offer students an amazing new opportunity to be part of the KHOP Learning Community. The CN AHEC is helping coordinate the Kearney Health Opportunities Program Learning Community by providing additional support and professional development opportunities. The learning community will be comprised of first-year KHOP students and four KHOP upperclassmen mentors. View more information on CN AHEC and the Learning Community.
