Health Science Education is a rich content area that integrates academics with specific health science technology and education courses with a variety of problem-based and work-based learning opportunities. Work-based learning may include job shadowing, internships, and other clinical experiences that allow students to observe and learn from healthcare professionals.

Students may also develop their leadership potential through involvement in Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), a student-based organization for health science students. Students in the Health Science Career Cluster leave high school better prepared for further education and/or immediate employment in the healthcare field. Health Science focus pathways include Therapeutic Services, Diagnostic Services, Health Informatics, Support Services, Biotechnology and Research Development.
