Allied Health I (833101R / 833102R)
This second level course will build on the foundation laid in Introduction to Health Sciences, providing students with a more in-depth overview of the health care system. The course will include a more extensive study of careers, training in basic health care skills. Topics include human growth and development, nutri on and wellness, vital signs, First Aid & CPR, and infection control. Upon completion of this course, students will sample the work of at least three health care careers, and be able to communicate different pathways to various healthcare careers: specifically education and certification requirements.
Students will participate in numerous lab activities and class discussions. Field trips to hospitals, health care professional speakers and medical labs will further aid the student with the selection of a future career in medicine. Volunteer work and work-based learning experiences are required of this course where students will receive advanced training, service learning hours and potentially certification in areas of interest by the third year in the program. Students will experience five professional speakers and two Medical Learning Labs through the Museum of Science and Industry throughout the year.
