Medical/Hospital Careers

(High school students only)

(Biological Science credit for CUSD high school students.) 

This course is designed to prepare students for employment opportunities in health care facilities in the areas of therapeutic, diagnostic, and supportive services (radiology, laboratory, respiratory, central supply, pharmacy, medical records). Through classroom instruction, and on-the-job training in medical facilities and some local hospitals, students will receive training, including CPR certification, that will prepare and enable them to secure entry-level employment or pursue advanced training. Internship participation requires one form of ID. Please see IMPORTANT NOTICE regarding this course.


College and Career Advantage does not require fees for high school students to participate in classes. Outside agencies that serve as internship sites may require students to meet certain requirements before starting an internship. Student expenses to fulfill the internship requirements of outside agencies may include: TB test, flu vaccinations, and appropriate shoes.

Health Science classes may require practicing procedures on other students and/or patients, both male and female, of differing ages and may include the study of reproductive and other systems. Additionally, these classes may require heavy lifting and bending. Participation in these activities is required for a Certificate of Completion and continuation in the Health Sciences Career Pathway.
