Our aging population, the increased use of medical technologies for diagnosis and treatment, and the resulting demand for healthcare services assure us that Healthcare will continue to be the fastest-growing industry sector.    St. Lucie County’s Allied Health programs offer students opportunities for certifications that lead to entry-level jobs in Healthcare, as well as articulated credits to continue their educational and career pathway at the college level.

Note:  Completion of Health Science 1 and Health Science 2 may be substituted for one science credit in Anatomy and Physiology (2000350).   However, this course or its substitutions do not meet requirements for an “Equally Rigorous Science” credit.
