Healthcare & Medical Profession Pathway
Students should participate in the Healthcare and Medical Profession Pathway if they have an interest in healthcare careers. The healthcare industry is one of the largest providers of jobs in the United States and according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics; occupations related to healthcare are projected to have one of the fastest job growths to 2026.
To work in the healthcare industry, you must have special training. Therefore, in addition to the three (3) required STEM core courses, students will be studying either the certificate and associate degree pathway or the bachelor, masters and doctorate degree pathway. Each pathway is designed to provide students with experience in courses that are typically required in college.

- Completion of required and elective courses in the STEM Pathway with an overall 3.0 GPA
