Biomedical Science

  • Whether discovering new cancer treatments or teaching healthy lifestyle choices to their communities, today’s biomedical science professionals are tackling significant challenges to make the world a better place. Biomedical Science students take on these same real-world challenges – and they do it before they graduate high school!

    Working with the same tools professionals use in hospitals and labs, students engage in compelling, hands-on activities and work together to find solutions to problems. Students obtain from the courses in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives on any career path they take.
