Total enrollment will be capped at approximately 460 students with classroom sizes no greater than 34 students per teacher. The Los Angeles area is a center for healthcare delivery and research and our four year program will include internships and volunteering opportunities with hospitals. By blending academics with real-world experience, we will immerse our students in the exciting field of health care from the moment they step through our doors. The Medical Magnet will offer a Sports Medicine strand that will prepare students for a range of careers, including Certified Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapy, Orthopedics,and other forms of athletic therapeutics. Additionally, a broader Medical Care strand will introduce students to the worlds of clinical practice, nursing, as pharmacists, administrators, as well as careers within information technology. All university required courses will have medicine and healthcare as an additional focus.
