As a student in the Medical Magnet Program, you can pursue rigorous academic courses in three distinct strands, Pre-Medicine, Allied Medical Sciences and Sports Medicine. The three strands prepare successful completers for further educational or career opportunities. The Pre-Medicine strand prepares students for coursework at the postsecondary level and establishes a strong foundation for future medical school students with project-based learning methods and a variety of laboratory techniques. The Allied Medical Sciences strand allows students to pursue interest in various allied health careers through the National Academy Foundation (NAF) Academy of Health Sciences (AOHS) curriculum. The AOHS curriculum engages students through a series of career exploration courses taken throughout their high school experience. All courses use project-based learning techniques with an emphasis on strengthening literacy, project management, leadership, and team building skills while fostering creativity and innovation. The Sports Medicine strand provides students with laboratory and real world field experiences through school-site internships with Miami Sunset’s athletic teams. The three strands prepare successful completers for further educational or career opportunities.

The curriculum covers almost all the topics included in a four year college engineering program. Students will have the opportunity to learn engineering concepts and theories, and then apply them in the classroom to examples of current real world engineering problems. Students in this program must have well developed math and study skills, but, above all, a genuine interest and commitment in bettering their critical thinking and problem solving skills.
