Class Experience

Students that wish to have a future in medicine will take a lot from this course.  It is one that will mix critical thinking, teamwork, and written skills to enhance their knowledge while preparing them for the future careers they desire.  
This is a high school honors-level/college prep course.  The work-load in this class will reflect such.  
Starting at a young age, I knew I wanted to work in a field of Science.  I went to a high school devoted to a health-care career, even attending Yale University for both their SCHOLARS summer and HPREP weekend programs, graduating them at the top of my class. During that time, I found myself studying medical terminology and dissecting cadavers with the Yale Medical students.  I began in medical fields as a Lifeguard while in High School, moving on to a Medical Response Technician, further advancing to higher careers within the Emergency Medical Services (including working as an advanced level EMT on a Paramedic truck).  I am a Nationally certified Instructor for Basic Life Support, and have instructed at Universities in the Tri-State area.  I studied Forensic Science at the University of New Haven, and have strong background in college-level medical terminology as a part of my studies.  I have a passion for teaching and writing, and look forward to meeting, instructing, and inspiring each of your passionate learners in this course! 
Homework will be given weekly.  Students may need to do additional research for some assignments.  Students must complete all assignments to be successful in this course.  
Please ensure your student has access to Google docs for assignments. Some material may be best printed for study purposes.
Through Quizzes and written assignments, students will be assessed.  Any student wishing for a grade will receive one through Google Classroom.  A certificate of completion will be given to any student who completes the course with a passing grade.  
No live meetings, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
Talk of medical terminology and illness will happen in this class.  Proper names of anatomy will be used, and pictures of human organs will be shown, which may be too graphic for some students.  
This is an honors-level/college prep High School Level course, and the content is as such.  Your student will have a lot of work to do during this class to be successful.  If any student needs additional time to complete the assignments, please let me know.  
Nothing will be needed outside of what I will be giving to students.
