About the Pathway

Project Lead the Way Biomedical students experience 4 years of integrated academics focused on the Health and Medical industry. In addition to completing rigorous A-G courses, students take a 4 year course sequence of classes specifically focused on the skills and situations connected to the medical field.

 

Technical Course Sequence:

- Principles of Biomedical Science

- Human Body Systems

- Medical Interventions

- Biomedical Innovation

 

Working with their academic classes and larger community, students are expected to practice their skills outside the classroom with internships, jobs, and volunteer opportunities. 

 

Any interested student is welcome to apply to the pathway.

Students interested in the Distinguished Scholar pathway experience may apply with a minimum GPA of 3.3 and enrollment in Algebra 1.
