  • Practicum in Health Science (Clinical Rotation 1)

    Practicum in Health Science I (Clinical Rotation I) is a two-hour full year program that provides the student with a unique opportunity to explore a variety of health care careers. Students develop skills while training under the direct supervision of a licensed healthcare professional. The first portion of the course is spent in the clinical lab in preparation for the clinical rotation intern experience. The remainder of the year students alternate between related classroom instruction and serving as an unpaid intern in a hospital or other health care facility. 

    In the first year of the program, students will certify in AHA Basic Life Support CPR, OSHA Healthcare, and Stop the Bleed. Classroom instruction will include introductory material into Patient Care Technician (PCT) and Pharmacy Technician.  Completion of the curriculum content and National Certification exams for both PCT and Pharm Tech will be continued in the second year of the program in Practicum in Health Science II (Clinical Rotation 2)

     

    Students enrolled in this course must provide their own transportation. 

     

    Acceptance into Practicum in Health Science I (Clinical Rotation I) is based on a qualification packet.
