The Medical Academy (MA) is a Project Lead The Way small-learning community offering students an innovative course of study comprised of integrated classes focused on biomedical innovation (BMI) for careers in the biomedical sciences.
The major goals of the MCA:
- To introduce high school students, including English language learners, under-represented minorities, and at-risk students to all aspects of the biomedical sciences field in terms of the broad spectrum of career opportunities.
- To design and implement a series of integrated courses that are experiential in nature, standards-aligned, and directly related content knowledge and skill mastery to student-centered BMS projects.
- To give third-year MCA students opportunities for job shadows in local hospitals, medical offices, or with local biomedical sciences industry partners.
- To prepare students to undertake and succeed in rigorous post-secondary health-related education pathways.
