Areas of instruction include a foundation in healthcare, medical terminology, vital signs, infection control, medical records management, pharmacology and anatomy & physiology. The curriculum will also include medical malpractice, medical law and ethics, basic administrative skills, electrocardiology, nutrition, and medical laboratory assistant skills. Students in their senior year participate in a clinical internship at an offsite medical facility or other approved locations. If eligible, seniors may also enroll in the EMT certification course.
