Project Lead the Way: Biomedical Sciences


Project Lead the Way:


The Biomedical Sciences Program is based on the National Standards for Science, Mathematics, and English Language Arts, and the Accountability Criteria for National Health Care Cluster Foundation Standards. The goal of the program is to increase the number of students pursuing careers in the biomedical sciences, including healthcare. Students who complete the program are prepared for employment and further education at two- and four-year college levels.


Is It the Right Fit for Me?

Biomedical Sciences and Healthcare careers are a good fit for students who enjoy math and sciences. This career path provides you the opportunity to save lives and/or provide care to people. These are fast-paced fields that require a commitment to life-long learning. Many careers in the field require teamwork and/or management of others. Your work may involve emergency situations, seeing blood and other human trauma, and working long hours (including weekends and holidays).
