CPAVTS will offer a new course called Emerging Health Professionals for the upcoming school year.  This course is a dual enrollment with Messiah College that offers skills-based training with a university learning, while students shadow the health care profession at UPMC.  This is a senior only course for those interested in a health care profession, which students will get to explore first hand with this course. 

This half day program for seniors will be for the duration of the entire school year.  Students will spend two days a week taking college courses, two days in a health care profession environment, and one day developing skills.  Students will take college courses such as anatomy and physiology totaling eight credits towards their post-secondary education. 

This is a great opportunity for students who want to pursue a health care profession like a physician’s assistant, dental medicine, sports medicine, or a registered nurse.
