Biomedical Science


This four-course PLTW Biomedical Science sequence allows students to investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. They examine the structures and interactions of human body systems and explore the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, all while working collaboratively to understand and design solutions to the most pressing health challenges of today and the future.

Careers within this field vary such as:

  • Biomedical Scientist 
  • Microbiologist
  • Healthcare Scientist 
  • Forensic Scientist
