Biomedical & Health Science

The Biomedical program provides students with the opportunity to explore three different tracks within the health sciences fields: nursing, dental or veterinary. The first year will introduce students to different careers in health sciences. Students will study anatomy, physiology, nutrition, diet therapy, and complete a medical research project through field trips, demonstrations, and classroom instruction. The second year prepares students in basic health science skills, body mechanics, aseptic techniques, and medical terminology. Students are placed in a clinical experience of their choice during the second semester to gain valuable hands-on experience in the industry; clinicals are held twice a week in the evening after school. Students who complete the program can further their education or enter into the workforce as a Certified Nursing Assistant, Dental Aide, Veterinary Aide and more.
