Health Technology

  • Students in Health Technologies are introduced to a broad range of healthcare and allied healthcare careers. Students provide services either directly or indirectly to meet preventive, therapeutic, diagnostic, convalescent, rehabilitative, and custodial health needs of individuals and their community. The broad based curriculum provides entry level preparation for many areas of employment. The Health Tech program includes a challenging academic component. In addition to learning technical skills, students pursue a specialized academic program that includes anatomy and physiology, as well as chemistry. Students gain real world experience working in clinical settings such as Cape Cod Hospital, Hospice House, Pleasant Bay Nursing and Rehab, and other various healthcare facilities. After successful completion of the state written and practical exam, juniors receive CNA certification through the Massachusetts Nurse Aide Registry. Certification in CPR, AED, and First Aid is conducted yearly.
