Overview

Overview

Bronx Academy of Health Careers says

We prepare students for a variety of health professions including medicine, medical technology, nursing, pharmacology and physical therapy. We familiarize our students with the habits, practices and educational requirements needed to become a health professional, and provide them with opportunities to volunteer and intern in local healthcare institutions. Students study four years of science and math to be well prepared to meet the challenges of a college education in healthcare. We collaborate with colleges to offer our students an opportunity to take college level, credit-bearing courses for free. Our staff works with parents to ensure students receive the support they need to succeed.
