"The students realize what they like and what they don't like. The purpose of this course is to find your strengths and what you're good at and have a game plan for when you get out of high school.
I had a student who thought she wanted to be a vet. She took this course and liked the ophthalmology unit. Now she’s working in an ophthalmology department.

I had a senior last year and he wanted to be an elementary school teacher, then he took this class and he realized that he actually liked the medical imaging unit. Now he's in a radiology program."
