The Allied Health program is an approved New Jersey Department of Education Career and Technical Program. Thus, there exists an approved curriculum; an advisory committee; CTE certified instructor; a Career and Technical Student Association; and an approved program of study articulated with higher education.
Additionally, the following courses, Dynamics of Health Care in Society, Medical Terminology, Anatomy and Physiology I, Anatomy and Physiology II, Scientific Principles of Nutrition, and Nutrition and the Lifespan are all eligible for collegiate credit through Rutgers School of Health Professions.
Dynamics of Health Care in Society, DCC
Dynamics of Health Care in Society is an orientation to health care and delivery, from an interdisciplinary perspective, with a focus on process skills to include critical thinking, ethical reasoning, effective communication, and self-directed learning abilities. The professional competencies stress application to general issues and topics common to all healthcare providers. Emphasis is placed on the role of the healthcare practitioner as both providers and consumers of healthcare services.
Medical Terminology, DCC
Medical Terminology is the study of words that pertain to body systems, anatomy, physiology, medical processes and procedures, and a variety of diseases. It provides specialized language for the healthcare team, enabling healthcare workers to communicate in an accurate, articulate, and concise manner. This course is designed to give the students a comprehensive knowledge of word construction, definition, and use of terms related to all areas of medical science. The course includes, but is not limited to, terms related to the anatomy of the human body, functions of health and disease, and the use of language in processing medical/dental records and claim forms.
Anatomy and Physiology I, DCC
This course focuses on the structure and function of the human body. The course follows a sequential development of the major body systems in an organized and structured curriculum. The course is designed to give the students an overview of the human anatomical structure and an analysis of human physiological principles. Labs include slide work, dissection of various animals, and studies of the human skeleton.
Anatomy and Physiology II, DCC
This course allows for FURTHER exploration of the structure and function of the human body. The course follows a sequential development of the major body systems in an organized and structured curriculum. The course is designed to give the students an overview of the human anatomical structure and an analysis of human physiological principles. Labs include slide work, dissection of various animals, and studies of the human skeleton.
Introduction To Clinical Research/Health Research DCC
This Course Assesses the Student’s Ability to Recognize and Understand the Entire Health Research Process. Students Are Expected to Know How to Conceptualize a Research Project and See It Through to Completion, Including Identifying a Focused Research Question, Choosing Appropriate Study Designs, Collecting Data That Will Answer the Question, Basic Understanding of Data Analysis, Disseminating Findings, and Following Research Ethical Principles and Considerations.
