Science 20 or Elective 20
Students will apply information in the areas of medical knowledge systems and ethics, human anatomy and physiology, nutrition and metabolism, and medical diagnostics. Understanding the basic anatomy and physiology of the human body will provide a context for studying the normal and abnormal functioning of various body systems and the tools and techniques used to diagnose those systems. Students will also investigate the range of health science careers and post-secondary programs available in Saskatchewan. Check out the Sask DLC's Science pathways.
Note that there will be an opportunity for a dual credit with a Saskatchewan Polytechnic Course called MTER 180: Medical Terminology. This is a 10 hour project that would replace the project that exists in this course. More information will be provided in the Health Science course after you register.
