Program Description
This two-year Career-Technical Education Program offers the perfect starting point for students to shape their futures in a health career field. Students develop foundation skills required to be successful in careers in medical, dental and allied health care. These include basic health care skills, medical laboratory processes, physical therapy techniques and clinical assessments. Successful students go on to pursue careers in emergency care, pharmacy, rehabilitation, nursing, nurse aide, optical, dental, radiology, lab technician, medical assistant, home health care and veterinary care. Students interact with health care professionals in the classroom, as well as at worksite learning opportunities. Completers have more clearly defined career goals as they enter the workforce or continue post-secondary education. Coursework is provided in anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, nutrition, infection control and legal/ethical issues with a focus on patient-centered care. Level II students have the opportunity to complete coursework and clinical experience to become a licensed State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) and are also certified as AHA CPR-AED Health Care Providers. Post-secondary credits are available based on successful completion of the program and criteria set by the Ohio Department of Higher Education.
