Germantown High School offers a variety of career and technical courses designed to help students excel in whatever they may choose to do: whether that be a field requiring a university degree, or one requiring a technical college certification. Over the next few days, we’ll be highlighting several of these courses.
This course is an orientation to the health care cluster consisting of four career majors: Nursing, Medicine, Dentistry, and Allied Health. It is also designed to develop and enhance an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of each career major area. Communication, study, and leadership skills will be emphasized as the student learns about the health care industry, health care economics, and career opportunities available. Medical Terminology will be integrated throughout the course. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to focus on a career major path and make informed decisions regarding choices for continuing education and/or employment. This course addresses the Tennessee Learner Goals and Academic Expectations, Core Content for Assessment, and includes core components from the National Health Care Skill Standards.
