Lindsey Troglin studies Biomedical Sciences at CKTC
What’s so exciting about the PLTW Biomedical Sciences program at Caddo Kiowa Technology Center in Fort Cobb, Oklahoma, is that it combines basic science courses such as chemistry, anatomy, and physiology with upper-level science courses such as microbiology and epidemiology. And it prepares students to continue in a related field at the college level.
So this program is a perfect fit for students who enjoy science and math. Plus, it’s a great addition to their traditional high school classes and a definite boost to their college career.
Those students who do follow-up their biomedical sciences training with a college degree can expect careers in the fields of science and medicine. Some examples of unique jobs that many college graduates hold are Forensic Technologist, Microbiologist, Pharmacist, Physician, Toxicologist, Dentist, Biomedical Researcher or Engineer, Zoologist and Nutritionist. Many of these are highly sought-after and come with high earning potential (for a list of more professional degrees, check here).
