The first year introduces the students to careers in health sciences. Students study anatomy, physiology, nutrition, diet therapy, and complete a medical research project through field trips, demonstrations, and classroom instruction. The second year prepares the student in basic health science skills, body mechanics, aseptic techniques, and medical terminology. Students are placed in clinical experiences of their choice during the second semester. The Health Science Careers Program also serves as a foundation for further education in a technical school or college.
