The program, known as the Northeast Louisiana Professional Healthcare Opportunities—Careers And Support is now simply referred to as “PHOCAS”.

 

The PHOCAS Project is a five-year demonstration project that will provide 800 eligible individuals with opportunities to obtain educational training for careers in the high-growth and high-demand healthcare sectors.  Sponsorship by PHOCAS also means that participants will benefit from intense case management and a host of supportive services.
