NEWAHEC collaborates with the Lakeshore Health Care Alliance to offer the Lakeshore Health Career Academy during the school year to high schools in rural Manitowoc and Sheboygan Counties.  This Academy provides students attending high schools without a formal health career pathway the opportunity to explore health careers and prepare for higher education or employment through coursework and experiential learning. Our model advances the student from career exploration to entry level employment and/or high education.

A limited number of grants are provided by the Northeastern Wisconsin Area Health Education Center

About the Courses

Medical Terminology:  Focuses on the component parts of medical terms, including prefixes, suffixes, and word roots. Spelling, definition, and pronunciation will enhance student learning as students practice formation, analysis, and reconstruction of medical terms. Medical terminology will come “alive” through an introduction to operative, diagnostic, therapeutic and symptomatic terminology of all body systems, as well as systemic and surgical terminology. 3 college credits
