What is Emerging Health Professionals?

The Emerging Health Professionals Programs is a dual enrollment program that combines skills-based,
interactive and university-level classroom learning with shadowing in a health care setting. The program is designed for high school seniors interested in the health care field and allows students the opportunity to explore careers in health care first-hand. In addition the program is designed to prepare students for post-secondary education by offering college science courses.

The Emerging Health Professionals Program is a half-day program that runs the duration of the school year in conjunction with required high school curriculum. Students spend two days a week taking college courses, two days a week in a health care setting and one day a week developing skills. Students in this program take anatomy and physiology for a total of eight college credits.
