The Medical Academy is designed to expose students to occupations within the healthcare industry. In addition to rigorous academic preparation, this academy helps students develop proper workplace skills, terminology, ethics, and procedures for the healthcare industry. Students will certify in safety, first aid, and CPR, as required by the American Heart Association. The opportunity is available to become certified as a State Registered Nursing Assistant or Pharmacy Technician, or certified in Allied Health. Through the academy experience, students will also receive opportunities for clinical site work, job shadowing, internships, and mentoring in the local healthcare industry. Students may also join the Health Occupation Skills of America (HOSA), which will help provide leadership opportunities in the community.
