Medical Occupations is a program that introduces students to the medical field. Students are able to investigate and learn about different professions within the health care system. Students continue learning medical terminology as well as anatomy and physiology of the human body and basic health care skills. Second year students have the opportunity to obtain their Certified Nurses Assistant (CNA) certification. Students that opt to take part in the CNA program must perform 70 hours in the clinical setting and pass a state exam to be put on the State of Maine CNA Registry. Students continue to explore careers in health care and focus more on in-depth knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology. Students also learn phlebotomy and can take part in testing for phlebotomy certification after 40 hours of training.
