EUGENE, Ore. -- Churchill High School in south Eugene is offering a unique two-year program to help students who want to go into the medical field.
The program is called Medical Pathway, and the goal is to give those students a broad base they can later use to get into the health services industry.
In the hands-on class, students learn about the different systems within the body, as well as anatomy and general patient care.
“I decided that maybe if I take this class, it would help me, and it has helped me -- a lot,” Churchill senior Diamond Brooks said. “I have learned so much, and then when I was doing my clinicals for my CNA class, I actually knew a lot of stuff to do because of this class, and so I want to stick with it.”
Right now, about 100 students are enrolled.
Churchill High School offers more CTE courses than any other school in the area.
