Course Description

Allied Health Technology is an Honors College Prep course designed for academic students who wish to

pursue a career in the healthcare professions.

 

This course is currently located at the work-based site of Mercy Suburban Hospital where students are supervised during clinical rotations in medical, surgical, support services, administrative and internships.

 

This program is open to 11th and 12th grade students who meet the required prerequisites.

Course Content

     Students learn to plan, organize, interact, assume responsibility and develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. The curriculum is designed to facilitate communication, cognitive, social-emotional, and the developmental skills necessary for an entry-level position in the health field and continued education on the post-secondary level.


     Topics of study include legal and ethical standards in health care, communications, body systems in wellness and disease, health care delivery systems, safety and emergency systems, infection control, language of medicine, principles of nutrition, current issues in health care, leadership through HOSA , and seminar visitations to other hospitals/schools. 

 

Dual Enrollment

The Allied Health Program is a Dual Enrollment Class with Montgomery County Community College (MCCC). MCCC has approved our instructor as an adjunct professor. As a result, students will receive transcripted college credit(s) that can be used to continue their post-secondary education at MCCC or any number of institutions. Students must earn a grade of "B"or higher to receive the credit(s).

 

Learning Environment

In a new, state-of-the-art facility, a caring and highly qualified professional staff share their skills while challenging and encouraging their students.  Many of the instructors have established high profiles in their fields of expertise prior to becoming teachers.  Students not only get to know their teachers, but the teachers get to know them and respond to their individual needs as they extend their support and enthusiasm while preparing students for the future.  The students are able to obtain a variety of state and nationally recognized certifications and licenses.

 

Student Organizations
Students have the option to participate in two nationally recognized career and technical student organizations – SkillsUSA and Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA).  Students can compete at the district, state and national levels.
