Medical Certificate Program Year 3 - Fall Medical Day 2021

On Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11th, junior and senior students of our Medical Certificate Program (Year 3) had the opportunity to engage in a Q & A with 14 health professionals/pre-health students across 6 different panels. First, all MCP students asked questions to a panel of BHS graduates who attended a local community college right after graduating high school, then a panel of BHS graduates who went straight to a 4-year university, then a panel of medical students who currently attend UC Irvine, then a panel of resident physicians also from UC Irvine, then a panel of STEM/medical professionals currently in their first 10 years of their career, and finally a panel of medical professionals who have more than 15 years of experience. Overall, the annual event was a success and over 120 junior/senior students were in attendance. This is one example of how Beckman High School strives to prepare students for post-secondary success.
