Health Occupations or “Health Tech,” as the students call it, is a preparatory class for any 10-12 grade student considering a career in medicine. We learn about infection control, medical terminology, medical abbreviations, legal concerns, and how to perform vital signs in the first year. The second level focuses on specific career skills in nursing assisting, physical therapy, and medical assisting in addition to First Aid and Job Seeking Skills. These students have the opportunity to practice the learned skills at Epworth Manor and Tyrone Hospital. Students have the chance to get certified in Health Care Provider CPR. The third year students go to clinical everyday for the first three periods of the day to see how functioning health care facility works and have the ability to interact with health care professionals. All students will also be part of the TASD Wellness Program.
