The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) 1.0 Case Management and Counseling Services

Publication Date: January 10, 2017


This brief summarizes descriptive findings about case management strategies and approaches used by the first round of Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program grantees.

Key findings show that:

  • 98% of non-tribal HPOG grantee programs employed dedicated case managers, but their specific roles and responsibilities varied considerably across programs.
  • Case managers had different responsibilities across four major functional areas:
    • monitoring of participant progress;
    • academic or career counseling;
    • personal or financial counseling, and;
    • employment counseling.
  • Case managers maintained ongoing contact with participants. On average, case managers and other frontline staff were in contact with participants two to three times a month in person in an individual setting.
  • Case management direct service functions were often enhanced by external support services that complemented and/or expanded the efforts of the case managers.
  • 92% of non-tribal HPOG program participants received case management services in the first 18 months after enrollment.
