ABOUT THE HEALTH CAREERS ACADEMY
The Oakmont Health Careers Academy is a voluntary three year college preparatory program. The Academy provides highly rigorous and relevant curriculum that stresses real world application for students interested in medical careers. Freshman students interview for admission, commit to improving their academic standing, and demonstrate strong motivation to explore a future in healthcare.
The Health Careers Academy curriculum and exposure to the medical world gives students a strong foundation for entrance to medical careers that cannot be derived from even our honors and AP classes. Academy graduates have the personal and leadership skills to be very successful in postsecondary education and in the professional world.
The Academy program includes technical courses at four levels. In these classes, students have experiences that typically do not occur until the medical school level. In two of the Medical Technology courses, select students are given the opportunity to observe EKG's, chemotherapy treatments, ultrasounds, open heart surgery and much more.This program is open to all students in the Roseville Joint Union High School District and students who obtain inter-district transfer agreements to attend Oakmont High School. Please speak with the academy coordinator before applying for transfer to Oakmont.
