What We Do

The Medical Professions program introduces students to a variety of health occupations including nursing, emergency services, home health care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, surgical services, dental assisting, radiology, cardiology, and acute care experiences. Students will learn the foundational skills required in specific health occupations and will prepare for college coursework in a variety of medical fields. Students use state of the art 3D anatomy technology in the classroom to enhance learning of the human body and body systems. We are the first school in Vermont to use this new technology.

Through classroom instruction and clinical shadowing experiences students will learn functions and educational requirements of various health care team members, specific job skills common to patient care, knowledge of the human body and body systems, math skills used by today’s health care practitioners, medical terminology and communication skills in healthcare settings , and advanced health career exploration through clinical internship in acute care facilities, medical offices and clinics. Upon successful completion, students will have acquired a solid foundation preparing them to pursue post-secondary education in a wide range of medical professions/health care fields.
