We are pleased to inform you of a new high school program in RUSD.  Housed at Arlington High School, Project Lead the Way Biomedical Sciences Pathway will begin its second year in the 2017-18 school year. Current Arlington freshmen may also apply. If your student is interested in pursuing a career in medicine, or is curious about biomedical research and innovation, this program is the perfect fit.

 The rigorous and relevant four-course PLTW Biomedical Science sequence allows students to investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. Students engage in activities such as investigating the death of a fictional person to learn content in the context of real-world cases. They examine the structures and interactions of human body systems and explore the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, all while working collaboratively to understand and design solutions to the most pressing health challenges of today and the future.

From nausea to neuroscience, from fevers to forensics, the ever-advancing world of medicine spans from the common to the exceptional. The biomedical field has never been for the faint of heart or mind. However, countless professionals are relied on daily to ensure our physical, mental, and emotional health. The students of today will take the place of those professionals tomorrow, and they will need to be ready to respond to health challenges of the future – many that do not even exist today.
