The Health Occupations program seeks to meet present and predicted needs for health care workers within a health care delivery system characterized by diversity and changing technologies. This program recruits qualified and motivated students and prepares them for pursuit of appropriate health careers.
Curriculum incorporates concepts related to the health care delivery system including:
- Prevention (wellness)
- Patient/client diagnosis
- Rehabilitation as a result of disease/disorders
Teaching/learning strategies integrate appropriate workplace basic skills, assisting students in using resources and technologies, functioning as effective members within a complex system, and accessing and using appropriate information/data.
Opportunities for expanded leadership, management, technical, and citizenship development are available through membership in a co-curricular student organization, Hosa - Future Health Professionals (Hosa - FHP). Hosa - FHP seeks to instill an attitude of pride, commitment, and professionalism in its members, and strives to build self-esteem and confidence. Hosa - FHP enhances the delivery of compassionate, quality health care by providing opportunities for knowledge, skill and leadership development of middle school, high school and post-secondary students interested in healthcare.
The class is offered at Marquette High School, and is open to students from Gwinn and Superior Central High Schools. Students also complete a semester-long work-based learning experience through a clinical rotation at Marquette General Hospital.
