Academy of Health Professionals

The Academy of Health Professions program uses project and problem-based learning, clinical experiences, as well as classroom and lab instruction to teach students about the field of health care. Students progress through two foundation courses: Foundations of Medicine and Health science and Structure and Functions of the Human Body. Opportunities for students to apply what they are learning to real-life health care situations are part of specialized health care courses. Students also have the opportunity to earn state and/or nationally recognized certifications, and/or college credit through articulation agreements with local colleges.  

  • Foundations of Medicine and Health Science
  • Structure and Functions of the Human Body
  • Medical Specialty (CNA/GNA)
  • Certified Clinical Medical Assistant/ Clinical Internship
