Health Technology program[edit]

The program was established in 1988, and prepares students for a career in the medical field. The program is divided into three levels, the first being Health Technology I.

Health Technology II involves a youth internship program with UPMC hospitals, as well as the exploration of areas such as anesthesiology, emergency medicine, gerontology, nursing and occupational therapy. The final stage, Health Technology III, links together the high school and the Community College of Allegheny County, offering students the opportunity to enroll and gain credits in at least one college-level course.
