    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it's very hands on learning and it gets you ready for college. This class shows you should interact with patients and how to diagnose someone. It also shows you how to document medications and give injections, shots, etc.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to give a PPD shot and how to do different injections and shots such as intramuscular and intradermal, sq shots. I also learn how to order medications and put in office visits like a Medical Assisting would do. I learned how to give oral medications and the difference between each oral medication.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students that if you really want to work in the medical field this the course you want to take. This course makes it easier for you when you go into college or medical or nursing school. You have to be motivated and willing to learn new things to be in this program and you will learn many skills that people in college are learning

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great course and the teacher really knows how to simplify complicated systems and how to get students to learn so much information in a small amount of time. Not to mention the equipment that is available to students to enable them to memorize body systems such as fake skeletons and organs that are properly named. overall this class offers great networking opportunities which have gotten many students jobs and even shadowing and internship opportunities.

    Course highlights:

    During this course I learned about different body systems like the skeletal system. where we would learn detailed information about the body like what every single bone is called and the different layers of bone. Not to mention that we would also learn the diseases pertaining to such a system. And we would do case studies pertaining to a real world problem in order to test how much information we were retaining.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to study at least half an hour each night to help retain more information. And to really try their best and not to be afraid to reach out to fellow students for help because sometimes it is better to hear the subject from someone who is similar to yourself. Also to take very good notes and listen to the lectures and powerpoints because most subjects discussed in class will appear on test even if it was not assigned.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Yes, I would recommend this course because it provides many opportunities for you in the healthcare field. It allows you to find your interest in the healthcare field and it challenges your knowledge. This course makes you grow as a person and it helps you become a more independent individual.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to take someones vital signs which consist of blood pressure, height, weight, and temperature. I also learned how to administer an intramuscular vaccine as well as a subcutaneous vaccine. These were the things that had a greater impact on me.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell them to be organized and not leave their assignments for last minute. A major advice would also be to study for the exams given because they are not easy exams. Therefore it is necessary to take notes. Lastly, I would recommend everyone to have an interest for the medical field because if not you will not enjoy this course.
