Health Sciences explored at GHS

The Health Science program was introduced to Gatesville High School in 2017 to meet a growing need for health professionals in the Gatesville and surrounding communities.

The program allows students to learn and practice skills that will prepare them for a career in the health care fi eld.

Currently the program offers a class in the principles of health science, which is a yearlong course offered to the freshman class that teaches basic information about healthcare, careers in the fi eld and how to work together as a healthcare team.

The program also teaches the history of healthcare, professionalism, body systems and more.

A sophomore level course in medical terminology, which is also a yearlong course, teaches how to ‘speak the language’ of health care professionals.
