Health Science Year One
First Year students may choose from the following sections
- Health Science Fundamentals
- Health Science Fundamentals Hybrid
Health Science Fundamentals is a one-year program for juniors or seniors who are interested in a career in healthcare. Students will complete the Michigan Health Science Standards, certification in American Heart Association CPR and First Aid, as well as human anatomy & physiology, medical terminology and career exploration. In addition, students will gain valuable insight into the exciting field of healthcare from dedicated healthcare professionals in our community.
In addition to the Fundamentals curriculum, Hybrid students also dual enroll in two free Kellogg Community College (KCC) courses, one course per semester. Students enroll in COMM 110 (Introduction to Communication Studies, 3cr) and PSYC 201 (Introduction to Psychology, 3cr). If students have already completed these classes, other opportunities are available. A PSAT/ SAT reading score of 25, or achieve a KCC Accuplacer reading score of 244+ is required to apply to this program.
Juniors successfully completing Fundamentals or Fundamentals Hybrid may apply for Health Academy, Health Practicum, Medical Certifications and OJT for Senior Year. A summer C.N.A. program is also an option.
