Health & Medical Sciences

Health & Medical Sciences is designed to give students an

overview of medical career opportunities.

We combine lecture along with laboratory and clinical experiences to

provide students with the knowledge necessary to work as an entry-level health

care provider. Beginning in December, Health

and Medical Sciences students complete 3-days per

week of clinical experience at the Caribou

Nursing Home. In May, students will take the State of

Maine certification exam to become a Certified

Nursing Assistant and Personal Support Specialist.

Also included is CPR/Basic Life Support

Healthcare Provider Certification. Similar training elsewhere may cost

a student in excess of $1200, whereas high school students may take

this program free of charge.
