In the Classroom
The healthcare industry is one of the largest employers in the U.S., requiring a continuous flow of skilled workers. The High School Inc. Healthcare Academy is doing just that! With state-of-the-art medical and dental classrooms located on campus, including mock patient rooms, exam rooms, dental chairs, and x-ray machines, students have access to real-world experiences and training right in their classroom.
With the help and guidance of expert healthcare professionals, Academy participants are surrounded by hands-on connected learning opportunities in both medical and dental, including assessing and properly handling mock medical scenarios, taking patient vitals, phlebotomy training, caring for electronic babies and more.
Outside of the Classroom
Although Academy classrooms are accurately realistic, students gain a completely different experience by having the opportunity to step outside of the classroom and see the inner workings of the current healthcare industry. Through the gracious participation of Orange County community industry partners, Academy students get a first-hand look at real- working hospitals and clinical offices through site tours, internships and even simulated surgeries, exhibiting the wide range of specialists and opportunities available to them in the healthcare profession!
Healthcare Occupational Students of America (HOSA) Club offers Academy students additional learning opportunities outside the classroom, including regional and state competitions in areas such as medical terminology, CPR & First Aid, sports medicine, medical photography and a variety of other medical subjects.
