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.
