Health & Medical Sciences is designed to give students an overview of medical career opportunities. We combine lecture along with laboratory and clinical experience to provide students with the knowledge necessary to work as an entry-level health care provider. Beginning in December, Health and Medical Science students complete 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 a Personal Support Specialist. Similar training elsewhere may cost a student in excess of $1,300, whereas high school students may take this program free of charge. 4 Saturday clinicals per year will be required. Students must be 16 to enter this program.  3 Credits
