The Biomedical Sciences Academy is a sequence of four courses. The program provides students with an understanding of the role of the biomedical sciences in the modern world and prepares them for careers in the rapidly growing medical sciences field. The four courses present a broad foundation in science and healthcare and include specialized knowledge in such areas as: molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, physiology, anatomy, and public health. Students also gain an awareness of the social, legal, and ethical issues surrounding technological advances related to the biomedical sciences. Students enrolled in Project Lead the Way Biomedical Sciences courses must also be enrolled in college-preparatory mathematics and science courses.
