Career Technical Education

  Health Science & Medical Technology

Industry Overview:

The standards in this sector represent the academic and technical skills and knowledge students need to pursue a full range of career opportunities in health science and medical technology, from entry level to management as well as technical and professional career specialties. The standards describe what workers need to know and be able to contribute to the delivery of safe and effective health care. California recognizes six career pathways which are grouped into functions that have a common purpose and require similar attributes. The pathways are Biotechnology, Patient Care, Health Care Administrative Services, Health Care Operational Support Services, Public and Community Health, and Mental and Behavioral Health. Standards for each career path build on and continue the anchor standards with more complexity, rigor, and career specificity.

Torrance Unified currently offers two CTE pathway programs in the Health Science & Medical Technology sector.
