Transcript of Western Tech- Health Science Technology (HST) Prezi by Brittnee Alford

Western School of Technology & Environmental Science
Health Science & Technology (HST)
What is HST?
HST is one of the four Allied Health magnet programs in Baltimore County. HST sets itself apart from other programs with its unique focus. HST prepares students for both
a college education
and
a career
.


Nursing
Pharmacy
Surgery
Dentistry
Physician Assistance
Psychology
Rehabilitation
Emergency Care
What makes HST stand out?
HST does not focus solely on Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) or Geriatric Nursing Assistant (GNA) certification. So, you will leave the program ready for careers in many healthcare areas:


What careers do HST students pursue?
1. Internships

2. AP Classes

3. Community College of Baltimore County
(CCBC) Co-enrollment
Tell me more about Internships...
In their junior and senior years, HST students receive hands-on training in real healthcare settings. You work in many hospital units:
Pediatrics
Mother-Baby
Child Psychiatry
Radiation Oncology
Neurology
Adult Surgery
VA Prosthetics
Physical Therapy
Tell me more about AP Classes...
HST students can earn up to 33 college credits by taking AP classes at Western Tech. In their senior year, many HST students choose to take AP classes instead of doing a senior internship.

You can choose from a variety of AP subjects:
AP English
AP Calculus
AP Statistics
AP Economics
AP U.S. History
AP World History
How does the CCBC Co-enrollment work?
Fewer HST students choose to take college courses at CCBC-Catonsville in place of the internship or AP Classes.

If you choose this option you could take classes like English 101 or Speech.

All students can qualify for up to 3 credits in First Aid and CPR through HST's partnership with CCBC.
Now that I know about the program features, what do I need to get in?
To succeed in HST, you need strong skills in two key areas:
1) Math and 2) Science.
