What is Future Health Professionals of Oregon (FHPO)?

FHPO is a two-credit SCI 116 online collegiate course designed for high school students interested in health careers. This course also satisfies PES 131—a required course for all tracks within EOU's Physical Activity and Health program. FHPO is delivered through Eastern Oregon University's Canvas platform, and facilitated by approved high school teachers at select Oregon schools. Students taking FHPO are exposed to contemporary topics in healthcare, complete 8 hours of healthcare job shadows, and research a multitude of health careers.

Currently, college credits cost approximately $400 per credit, depending on the school. This is an opportunity for high school students to earn two credits for only $31 each through Eastern Promise!
