Fundamentals of Health Science
Health Sciences Pathway
The Fundamentals of Health Science program is ideal for students interested in exploring healthcare careers. Instruction will provide the skills and knowledge (both academic and technical) necessary to pursue entry level, advanced certification and/or a two-year degree. Special emphasis is on physiology, anatomy, medical terminology, patient assessment/vital signs, infection control, medical ethics, job-related safety, CPR, first aid and communication. Students should be dependable, well-motivated, and show a sincere interest in health care.
Professional Health Science (2nd year option)
Professional Health Science provides advanced training and experience in the healthcare field. The course includes internship experiences and enrollment in advanced skill mini courses such as phlebotomy, electrocardiography, patient care assistance, and exercise science/sports medicine. Students successfully completing CPR/AED and medical terminology instruction may receive articulated college credit.
This second-year course represents the most advanced level of study in the health science program. Students applying to the program must meet specific achievement and performance prerequisites within either Health Science or Fundamentals of Health Science before gaining admission.
