Focus on Health Professions

Focus on Health Professions is an after-school program that introduces middle school students to the health sciences through a series of presentations on science and math.

Students are exposed to biology, anatomy and chemistry through a number of experiments, investigations and dissections. Topics covered include: the heart, skeletal system, digestive system, brain, lungs, eyes and visual optics, ear and sound waves, blood types, DNA, cells and their functions and teeth.

Students also participate in discussions with Creighton students in the health professions. Students learn how to enter a health career and about different specialty areas. In addition, the program offers tutoring at local middle schools after school, with Creighton students in the health professions volunteering their time as tutors.
