Program of study in the Biomedical Sciences, based on nationally recognized Project Lead the Way course of study.
The Biomedical Science career program provides students the opportunity to study the sciences associated with the field of medicine and forensics. The Project Lead the Way Biomedical Science curriculum is a sequence of courses aligned with national learning standards, which follow a proven hands-on, real-world problem solving approach to learning. Students explore the concepts of human medicine and forensic science. They are introduced to topics such as physiology, genetics, microbiology and public health. Through activities, students examine processes, structure and interactions of the human body – often assuming the role of biomedical health professionals. Using higher order thinking, collaborative work practices and problem solving skills, students investigate, and design innovative solutions to the health challenges of the 21st century, such as fighting cancer with nanotechnology.
Upon completion of Biomedical Science Courses and based upon acceptable End of Course Assessments, many colleges and universities will offer college credit for Biomedical Science
While the Biomedical science program is designed to prepare students to pursue a post-secondary education in one of the many biomedical sciences, students also receive additional training and certification as EKG technicians.
