Biomedical Science and Medicine-Project Lead the Way Program - Girl shocked at a lung display.

Biomedical Science students learn through the exciting Project-Lead-the-Way (PLTW) curriculum that will provide you engaging hands-on projects and experiences. You'll learn bio-informatics, human medicine, and an in-depth study of the human body. You will also study advanced math courses that may include Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-AP Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus and advanced science courses that may include Anatomy and Physiology, AP Chemistry, AP Biology and AP Physics. When you complete this program you will have been exposed to a diverse curriculum that will better equip you to choose a major at the college/university level. You'll also have the strong math and science foundation needed to be prepared to enter a college/university program in a science-related field.

You begin this two-year program in your junior year in high school. It is an academically intense, project-based program that focuses on the biomedical field. You will be able to test for college credit through AP courses and successfully transition to post-secondary education.
