Academic and Social Growth for ALL students, EVERY DAY!

Bio-Medical Science

The rigorous and relevant four-course PLTW Biomedical Science sequence allows students to investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health.  Students engage in activities such as investigating the death of a fictional person to learn content in the context of real-world cases.  They examine the structures and interactions of human body systems and explore the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease - all while working collaboratively to understand and design solutions to the most pressing health challenges of today and the future.  

Each course in the sequence builds on the skills and knowledge students gained in the preceding courses. All courses offer college credit for qualifying end-o- course exams similar to AP classes. The concomitant student organization, HOSA Future Health Professionals, offers students opportunities for leadership and competition at regional, state, and international leadership conferences.
