Our CTE Biomedical Pathway is based on CTECareer Technical Education, which"prepares youth and adults for a wide range of high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers" (ACTE website) and explores the various careers in the Health Science and Medical Technology industry. Our CTE Biomedical Pathway also supports students by preparing them for courses in local high schools and offering participation in the nationally recognized career technical student organization, HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America).
