The emphasis of the second course is primarily to expose students to advanced skills in the various health occupations and the basic health-care sciences.  Students may participate in shadowing experiences in selected health-care facilities.  Upon completion of this advanced course, students will be trained to work as entry-level assistants in various health occupations and will be certified in CPR at the health-care provider level. This course offers 2 Carnegie units.  Students who complete Healthcare and Clinical Services may count one of the credits earned in this course as one science credit toward graduation requirements if they complete both years of the Health Sciences program.  This program includes a minimum of 100 hours of clinical-type experience during the second course.  This clinical-type experience can include tours of health-care facilities, guest speakers, laboratory practice/demonstration in the classroom, and observation experiences in medical facilities.
