High School Program Readies Students for Medical Careers
This fall, Simi Valley High School launched the Medical and Health Careers Academy for students interested in further education and employment in the medicine and health care fields. Students can enroll in the program when they are in grade 10, during which they learn about medical careers. In grade 11, they attend courses in content and leadership, before they pursue internships in their chosen medical profession in grade 12. According to Tammy Harter, the program's organizer and a teacher at the school, some of the program's classes offer both college and high school credit.
