Our mission is to educate all learners to reach their full potential as contributing and productive members of our ever-changing global community.

Medicine and Healthcare

The Medicine & Healthcare Pathway allows students the opportunity to engage in a real-world experience in the healthcare environment where they get direct exposure to future employment opportunities in a growing industry. While in the healthcare setting, students will regularly spend time on site visits and rotational clinical experiences with leaders in the health and wellness industries.

Designed together with professionals from the health industry, students will have a firm understanding of the various aspects of health care, including a general view of the many professions available to them as prospective health care employees. Students will spend three periods each day for two semesters at the MNCAPS location, engaging in medical and healthcare related courses.
