General Career/Technical Education Program
Courses of Study
Alabama Occupational Diploma
Can students go to the hospital or the medical, dental, or vet office in the clinical major class?
Yes, look at the Health Science Cluster Crosswalk, page 423 in the Course of Study document.
What is the required course or courses for a student to be a completer or a concentrator?
Refer to the Health Science Options Handout. Example: To be a completer a student must take Clinical Spectrum and a Clinical Major in any one (1) or two (2) credit combination to earn three (3) credits. (See Handout for other options.) A concentrator is a student earning two (2) credits in the sequenced Health Science program.
Could the optional course be the Health Science Continuum/Internship and be taken after the other two credits?
Yes, this is an option. As in the past, there have been special circumstances where we have allowed seniors to be given credit for the advanced sciences. Sometimes seniors wait until the last year of school to realize they really do want to become a health care provider; without this option we could not serve these (usually exceptional) students in our program.
Please give an example of how the courses in the 1997 Course of Study compare/match up with the New Course of Study.
