Principles of Health Science
Course Description: Provides an overview of the therapeutic, diagnostic, health informatics, support services, and biotechnology research and development systems of the healthcare industry.
Course includes advanced problem solving skills, and laboratory experiences studying composition and changes of matter for college level preparatory skills.
Course Description: Designed to introduce students to the structure of medical terms, including preﬁxes, suﬃxes, word roots, singular and plural forms, and medical abbreviations. The course allows students to achieve comprehension of medical vocabulary appropriate to medical procedures, human anatomy and physiology, and pathophysiology.
Health Science Theory
Corequisite: Health Science Clinical
Health Science Theory: Designed to provide for the development of advanced knowledge and skills related to a wide variety of health careers. Students will employ hands-on experiences for continued knowledge and skill development.
Health Science Clinical: : Focuses on planning, managing, and providing therapeutic services, diagnostic services, health informatics, support services, and biotechnology research and development. Designed to provide for the development of advanced knowledge and skills related to a wide variety of health careers. Students will employ hands-on experiences for continued knowledge and skill development.
Course Description: AP Physics is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of Physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore topics such as Newtonian mechanics (including rotational motion); work, energy, and power; mechanical waves and sound; and introductory, simple circuits.
Practicum in Health Science
Course Description: The above practicums are designed to give students practical application of previously studied knowledge and skills. Practicum experiences can occur in a variety of locations appropriate to the nature and level of experience. The practicum courses will provide direct hands-on experience in the specific certification being pursued.
Course Description: Provides students with a college-level foundation to support future advanced coursework in chemistry. Students cultivate their understanding of chemistry through inquiry-based investigations, as they explore topics such as: atomic structure, intermolecular forces and bonding, chemical reactions, kinetics, thermodynamics, and equilibrium.
Course Description: An introductory college-level biology course. Students cultivate their understanding of biology through inquiry-based investigations as they explore the following topics: cellular processes - energy and communication, genetics, information transfer, ecology, and interactions.
Anatomy and Physiology
Course Description: Students conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students in Anatomy and Physiology study a variety of topics, including the structure and function of the human body and the interaction of body systems for maintaining homeostasis.
