The Patient Care pathway combines academic and hands-on learning to inspire students to pursue a full range of career opportunities in the Health Science and Medical Technology industry sector. Students learn medical terms and abbreviations, disease processes and common disorders, body systems, standard precautions, and ethical and legal responsibilities of a healthcare worker.   Advanced instruction will focus on emergency medical care, first aid, CPR, and procedures that will prevent injuries and increase athletic performance, including nutritional guidelines, protective sports equipment, psychological aspects of competition, training and conditioning.
