SCI-MED Academy Focus, AS


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs and Description

Sci-Med Academy provides students the opportunity to complete as many science-focused courses as possible in the two years that they are on our campus.  It is not designed as a terminal degree, meaning that the exclusive purpose of the program is for transfer to a 4-year institution upon completion.  Students have the opportunity to complete one of two curriculum tracks.  The Health track allows students to focus on courses that will prepare them for a career in health care, such as nursing or physical therapy.  In addition to the curriculum shared between the two tracks, students will complete one full year (2 courses) of Human Anatomy and Physiology.  The Natural Sciences (also termed Science Education) track allows students to get as many science-based pre-requisites completed prior to attending a 4-year institution, such as General Physics I and II.  Students in this track are typically interested in pursuing a graduate or professional degree, such as a Ph.D. or a M.D.  Most courses are Ohio Transfer Module (OTM) or Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG) for transfer credit to any public institution in Ohio.  Example careers of students that complete this program and continue their education towards a Bachelor’s degree include physical therapist, registered nurse, medical doctor, or a research scientist.
