In your third year, the Therapeutic Services course is designed to inform you of the rapid changes in business and industry through a rigorous array of coursework and work-based experiences that prepare you for advanced learning and a wide range of health career opportunities. You are introduced to careers in therapeutic services including, but not limited to, nursing, medicine, physical therapist, surgical technologist, respiratory therapist, emergency medical technician, and others. As a member of HOSA, you begin to prepare for competition in events such as Medical Math, Medical Spelling, Medical Terminology, Emergency Preparedness, and others. Over the course of the year, you will participate in a series of job shadowing days supported by UAB Hospital/other area partners and attend the Interview Skills Career Development Conference. The conference and pre-sessions will prepare you for résumé drafting, dressing professionally, managing your social media, and mock interviews. During the summer after your junior year, you will have the opportunity to participate in an Academy Internship where you begin to apply what you’ve learned in a real-world setting. You will also be given the opportunity to participate in dual enrollment at Lawson State Community College.
