Principles of Health Science

Principles of Health Science

Pre-registration is approaching, and Mrs. Stewart would like to show students that Principles of Health Science is a great option for those who are interested in the world of healthcare or CTE. This one-year course introduces students to human structure and function. Students can learn real-life skills that they can use later in the workplace or in college. Taking this class allows students to explore the world of healthcare while they are still in high school. 

Principles of Health Science has several areas of study including anatomy, healthcare delivery systems, medical terminology, emergency management, health information technology, and legal practices. Students will also practice their expertise in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid, which are amazing skills to have. As students dive into these topics, they begin build a strong foundation for their future. 

Rather than only learning from memorization and note-taking, Principles of Health Science works to keep students engaged in the learning process by working outside of usual methods. Students will use problem-solving skills and teamwork to complete classwork and projects. 

Principles of Health Science is a one-year CTE course.

Stewart explains, “The workload is challenging but fun. I believe in Project-Based Learning so most work will be hands-on. We will have fun projects that are based on real-life issues and hopefully, step away from traditional testing environments.”

Principles of Health Science focuses on incorporating diversity awareness. This teaches students the appreciation of all cultures and their important contributions to society. The appropriate use of technology is an essential part of this course.

If you like hands-on learning that keeps you on your feet, this is the class for you!

— Mrs. Stewart

One year in Mrs. Stewart’s class, she took her students on a field trip to CSN for the CTE Career Fair. Opportunities like this fair encourage a lot of students to commit to a college. Those who are unsure about their career can experience things first hand and ask questions to help them make a decision.  

Stewart continues, “My students were able to dress up in their scrubs and spend half the day at CSN. At the CTE Career Fair, they were able to win prizes, explore college classrooms, and talk to different universities about their degree programs. A lot of students were about to meet up with students from other high schools around the district who were also in the Health Science program.”

The pacing of this class is self-motivated, like other CTE courses, it is up to the student to keep up with their assignments. Principles of Health Science is ultimately a beneficial choice for students who are looking for a career in healthcare or to gain knowledge for the workplace.
