Medical Professions

The Medical and Health Science pathway will introduce students to the vast realm of medical science concepts.

Check out the Medical Professions Pathway Video

The Medical Professions pathway will introduce students to the vast realm of medical science concepts.  In this career pathway, students will explore biomedical technologies, medical interventions, pharmacology, laboratory skills and safety procedures, proper application of scientific methodology,  research skills, healthcare practices, interpersonal interactions, current research topics in medicine, and much more! Courses also include practice and development of professional communication skills and behaviors that will contribute to students’ future success in the workplace.

Through the use of project-based instructional techniques, students will engage in research, project planning, product design, and professional communication with local healthcare and medical professionals.  This career pathway offers students the unique opportunity to explore their own personal interests as they explore the amazing and multi-faceted world of medical science careers. All coursework is designed to prepare students for future educational pursuits, but even more importantly, prepare them to successfully enter the workplace.


Professional Certificate/Industry Recognized Credential:

  • CPR/AED-all students who complete one year (2 semesters) will earn the CPR/AED certificate through the American Heart Association. 
  • Optional:  Following successful completion of Pharmacology (two semesters), students are encouraged to complete a background check, apply for a pharmacy internship, and then take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam. Students must be 18 years old in order to complete the background check, apply for the internship, and apply for CPht, in order to take the exam.  TCALC will assist with identifying a partner for the internship.  TPS/TCALC does not give or proctor the exam, this is done through an outside testing agency. 

Recommended Prerequisite:  Successful completion of Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, and/or Chemistry
