The Biomedical Technology curriculum allows students to investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. Students examine the structures and interactions of human body systems and explore the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, all while working collaboratively to understand and design solutions to the most pressing health challenges of today and the future.
Students are exposed to a rigorous hands-on curriculum, reality-based sequence of courses providing a real world experience of what it would be like working in the field of biomedical sciences. The courses are designed to be taken along with traditional honors level math and science courses. The goal is to have a rigorous curriculum that allows students to be successful as they explore realistic and exciting topics making learning fun. Students have access to: Internship opportunities focusing on the many sub disciplines within the biomedical field. Mentors in the area of industry for innovating, designing, and developing new technologies; in academia furthering research and pushing the frontiers of what is medically possible as well as testing, implementing, and developing new diagnostic tools and medical equipment; and in government for establishing safety standards for medical devices. Exposure to the Biomed field through investigating and researching organs and tissues on a skeletal mannequin, work through interesting real world cases and often play the roles of biomedical professionals to solve medical mysteries. Students will have the opportunity to earn a scholarship to attend the BRITE program at North Carolina Central University.
