The Medical Academy Program (MEDS)
Poly’s Medical Academy is a binary pathway that prepares students for professional cutting-edge careers in the health and medical fields related to patient care AND health information technology.
MEDS students will have access to the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in the medical fields today. They will develop an understanding of what it means to become an advocate for health and healthy living. In order to achieve this goal, classes within the academy will work collaboratively to encourage curiosity and the desire to explore the medical fields from every level. Most importantly, Poly’s MEDS students will demonstrate competency in the practical, social, and ethical practices needed to participate in these fields as well as in the positive lifestyle choices to promote their own healthy family, neighborhood, and community at large.
MEDS students have a variety of electives to choose from, including Anatomy and Physiology, Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) Core, Medical Terminology, Medical Clerical Occupations/Internship, AP Biology, AP Environmental Science, AP Chemistry, Physics, AP Psychology or Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to Sociology, AP Statistics, Peer Assistant Training, Health and Career Explorations, Emergency Room Simulation LAB (SIMS), Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certification and Business Computers in Medical Occupations. See your counselor for all the exciting details!
