Through a partnership with UC Davis Health System, Health Professions High School is now offering an Allied Health Careers Pathway Program, a comprehensive, year-long curriculum that will provide hands-on experience and mentoring in a variety of allied health careers.

Many of these careers only require a certificate or associates degree from community college. They include: Registered dietician; respiratory therapist; pharmacy technician; medical assistant; and occupational therapy assistant.

The program is for 12th grade students with a minimum 2.5 GPA.

Students will be provided monthly field trips to UC Davis Health System, job shadowing opportunities and instruction and coaching in resume writing, dressing for success, financial literacy and interviewing skills.
