    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an incredible elective course. If you have any desire to go into a healthcare field or area of medicine, this class is a great building block for you. Advanced sports medicine covers a wide variety of topics throughout the year, whether its anatomy of the body to an emergency action plan for a sports team. Overall, this was one of my favorite courses throughout high school!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course had to be learning CPR, how to spine board, taping, and how to put on different braces. In my opinion the hands on labs really helped me grasp the concepts being taught to us better.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come in with an open mind toward medicine, and be ready to work. This class will bite you back if you don't put forth effort, but it is not a class that will have you struggling to get through at 2am on a Wednesday night.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Sports Medicine was a great class, we did many hands on labs and learned many techniques that are used in the healthcare field today. The teacher Paul Wheeler was great and very knowledgeable since he is also the athletic trainer for the school. A great class if you are considering any job in the medical field.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the course, some of my favorite parts were learning about emergency situations and how to deal with them. For instance, we learned CPR, how to spine-board, how to use an AED, etc. Later in the year we learned how to tape athletes, and at the end of the lesson we had a taping tournament. I would retake this class in a heartbeat.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Any student that wants to pursue a career in a health/medical field should take this course to learn about the human body as well as many other aspects of healthcare. The class will help create somewhat of a foundation for high school students interested in pursing a medical career.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher of this class was the athletic trainer of the school. Throughout the year we learned the anatomy and physiology of the body. Also, we learned about the many diseases and viruses that plague the body. Another aspect of the class was how we learned about how the modalities or healing processes athletes use and how we had to create hands on labs incorporating them. Overall, great class would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite parts of the class were the taping tournaments that we had. Throughout certain weeks students would race each other and see who could tape an ankle or other body part faster. Another highlight would be the labs we made as groups and how we had to try each of them out. For instance our lab was cryotherapy or cold therapy, and we had to make an ice bath and other cold treatment. What I learned from the taping tournament was how to properly tape ankles, wrists, thumbs, toes, knees, etc. What I learned from the labs were how different healing therapies could help improve athletes in different ways, from cold therapy to ultrasound to a parrafin bath which is a wax therapy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have any interest in going into any medical career or any career involved with helping people, this would be a great class to help get your feet wet and introduce you to some of the things that you would do in the real world. If you work hard and don't cruise through, sports medicine could be a very beneficial class to you.
