course description

In some states, health science is taught by a licensed health care professional, and that is still an option in Montana, but there is no specific teacher preparation program for the field of health science. Our science and health enhancement teachers are well-suited for this discipline. This course will prepare these educators to teach health science by providing a little background about the healthcare industry and a review of the skills necessary to pursue a career in healthcare.
