The Rural Health Opportunities Program (RHOP) is a cooperative program between Peru State College (PSC ) and the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC). Students admitted into the RHOP must be from a rural background. The purpose of the program is to recruit and educate students from rural communities who will plan to practice in the rural areas of Nebraska. It represents a commitment and dedication to quality health care for the citizens of the state. Upon selection into the RHOP, students are automatically pre-admitted into their specific program at the UNMC. Students are strongly encouraged and expected to practice in the rural areas of Nebraska. Currently, PSC has been allocated three seats in the pharmacy program.
Benefits of the Program
If selected as a participant in the program each student will:
- Receive a full tuition waiver while enrolled at PSC, provided the student maintains good standing within the RHOP.
- Receive acceptance to the UNMC College of Pharmacy as he/she begins the pre-pharmacy curriculum at PSC.
- Follow a special curriculum at PSC that will prepare the student for pharmacy studies at UNMC.
- Have recognition of their desire to become a pharmacist.
Application Deadline: Dec. 1.
