The Hazelwood CAPS Medicine and Bioscience strand provides students with the opportunity to gain real world, workplace experiences in the medical field. In partnership with Christian Hospital, the Hazelwood CAPS program will offer students the opportunity to work alongside medical experts and tackle real world problems in the medical field. The course will immerse students into a professional culture with a personalized learning experience in high skill, high demand careers to prepare them for their post-secondary future and help them make better informed career choices.
The course will follow the Project Lead the Way Biomedical Science curriculum but will also include training in professional skills for students and hands-on work experiences in the medical field. For the first semester of the course, students will learn skills they need to navigate a professional setting, learn terminology related to the medical field, explore case studies in the medical field, and engage with guest speakers from medical related careers. In second semester, students will participate in internships and job shadowing with medical professionals and research to solve a real world problem presented to them by medical professionals.
