The Biomedical Research Academy is an integrated immersion into biology, research, physiology and art. The program is designed to appeal to students with a strong interest in pursuing careers in medicine, nursing, research, or other allied health science fields. Students who participate in the Biomedical Research Academy will use a problem-based approach to develop a strong foundation into the practices of biomedical professionals and will gain significant career exposure through guest speakers. The course content is rigorous and fast paced. Each student will design, conduct, and present a year-long individualized biomedical research study. Students will also have the opportunity to earn health-related certifications (CPR and first-aid). This academy fulfills the advanced science graduation requirement. The Biomedical Research Academy is open to students from all three high schools through an application process. Students who are participating will travel to the Emerald Campus.
