Here at RHS, we offer a wonderful Health Science Program. We are happy to boast that we have the highest pass rate in the city of Chicago for Medical Assistants in a high school program, and that’s only the beginning of what makes our program stand out!
You may obtain an OSHA certification during sophomore year, CPR certification during junior year, and Medical Assistant certification during your senior year. Put your scrubs on and learn how to take vitals, prepare a bed, and practice many other medical techniques in our Medical Health Lab classroom.
You may also get the opportunity to participate in job shadow programs at various hospitals, practice hands on techniques in the class with your peers, participate in summer internship opportunities, and even qualify for early release days from school to get hands on training at clinics/hospitals.
The medical field is always in high demand, and in desperate need of well trained Medical Assistants--come take the pulse of our program!
