Health Science Pathways

  • Therapeutic Services

    Pathway Description: Careers in the Therapeutic Services pathway are focused primarily on changing the health status of the patient over time. Health professionals in this pathway work directly with patients; they may provide care, treatment, counseling and health education information.

    Secondary CTE Courses
