Montefiore Health Opportunities Program

The Montefiore Health Opportunities Program (Monte HOP) is a summer enrichment program for students interested in health careers who come from economically or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. The program is also open to individuals typically considered underrepresented in the health care industry.
Created in 2002, Monte HOP has graduated over 180 students with the goal to promote, educate and encourage these youth to pursue careers in health. Monte HOP is one of a number of student programs  teaching students about the healthcare industry and is also a partner program within the Bronx Science and Health Opportunities Partnership (BxSHOP) .
