The Littleton Health Sciences Program is a comprehensive two-semester course based on the National Consortium for Health Sciences Education standards. During the first semester students explore the healthcare industry and begin to lay the foundation for an entry level career. The rigorous curriculum includes: basic anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, health care systems, medical legal and ethical issues, and health career exploration. Students will be exposed to experts in the industry through guest speakers and field trips. Individual career pathways are developed during the second semester. Students may participate in the Nurse Aide Program or an Internship program. Professional portfolio development, employment skills and leadership training through the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) are emphasized during the second semester.
