Medical Careers

Would you like to get paid for taking care of others?

Health science workers promote health and wellness. They diagnose and treat injuries and disease. As a physician, dentist, or nurse, you could work directly with patients. You could also work in a laboratory to get information used in research or provide administrative support by keeping medical records.

Health science jobs are found at a variety of different sites. For example, you could work in a hospital, office, clinic, or nursing home. Or you could work on a cruise ship, at a sports arena, or within a patient's home.

Our Introduction to Health Science Careers course exposes students to the vast field of Health Care Careers and an introduction to medical terminology.  After completing the introductory course, students can continue on to earn their Certified Nursing Assistant and Home Health Aide certification, study to be a Pharmacy Technician, explore the field of Therapeutic Medicine and experience our Medical Lab course.
