​​​​​​​​​Health Science Cluster​

Program of Study: Clinical Rotations & EMT

8082V Clinical Rotation-Practicum in Health Science (two credits) Grade: 12

Prerequisite: Principles of Health Science and Health Science Theory

This course provides practical applications of previously learned knowledge and skills through classroom and clinical settings. Students may rotate through various departments of area hospitals, community health centers and medical offices while observing professional health care providers. Clinical Rotations also prepares students for the certified EKG Technician exam.


Why take Clinical Rotations and what type of experience will students gain?

For students who are interested in the medical field but unsure of what area they may want to focus on, this course provides the opportunity for exposure into several departments. Our students are able to go out on rotations twice a week as a class and observe doctors and nurses performing daily functions in various medical departments. This experience typically helps students decide what area they may or may not want to study within the medical field. Currently MCTC is partnered with Memorial Hermann and Methodist West.

What types of jobs can you do in the medical field?

  • Registered Nurse
  • Physician
  • X-Ray Technician
  • Surgeon
  • Anesthesiologist
  • Radiologist
  • EKG Technician
  • Podiatrist

Can you earn a certification while taking Clinical Rotations?

Yes. During the school year, students will have the opportunity to earn the EKG Technician certification, an entry level certification within the medical field. All students are also BLS/CPR certified during the first semester of the school year.
