Health Careers… Where Healing, Teaching, and Discovery Come Together…

Health Careers II is designed to help students gain further insight into the health care industry by introducing them to a number of health disciplines. They will also be instructed in the knowledge, attitude and skills needed to make the transition from high school to college or work. The instruction will be lecture, demonstration, laboratory, computer, and real life work. The student will be expected to work individually as well as on group projects. During the first semester, the student will be placed in a non-paid extended lab setting for nine weeks. Drivers license and transportation is required.
