Health Occupations

Academy of Our Lady's Health Care Connections Program addresses not only the national and state health care shortages, but supplies the answer for the expressed interest of AOL's students in health care professions.

It provides students with a curriculum that allows them to explore a variety of health care professions, become comfortable with the language used by health care professionals, practice employability skills, increase their appreciation of and application to the sciences, and learn basic clinical skills.

The Health Care Connections Program combines the key elements of discovery by integrating academics and clinical experience in order to provide a true educational experience.  It aims to inspire academic excellence, strong communication, and personal growth in the young person. A vital component of this program is an internship in local health care facilities.  During this time students are mentored by professionals in various careers and work settings.

In addition to sequential class course work students:

  • interact with health care professionals both at school and local health care facilities
  • maintain logs to record personal reflections, techniques, procedures, terminology
  • give presentations based on experiences
  • write research papers
