Purpose

This program offers a sequence of courses that provides coherent and rigorous content aligned
with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to
prepare for further education and careers in the Health Science career cluster; provides
technical skill proficiency, and includes competency-based applied learning that contributes to
the academic knowledge, higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes,
general employability skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills, and knowledge of all
aspects of the Health Science career cluster.

The content includes but is not limited to performing skills representative of one to three areas
of allied health care in the laboratory and clinical settings. Major areas of allied health are
defined as physical therapy, emergency, radiation, laboratory and respiratory medicine, and
occupational therapy. Other areas of health, medicine, dentistry, or veterinary may be included,
with instructor provided competencies. Such competencies must remain at the aide level
and not go beyond the scope of practice of unlicensed assistive personnel. Invasive

procedures that fall into the nursing scope of practice are not to be added. Clinical
experience is defined as activities performed in the clinical setting under the supervision of a
health professional duly certified/licensed in the selected occupational fields. Simulated labs are
not a substitute for clinical experience. School certificates for this module must be for “Allied
Health Assistant”. Specific competencies may be listed on the back.

Program Structure

This program is a planned sequence of instruction consisting of three courses and two
occupational completion points. The two credit core is required as a prerequisite for all
programs and options. Secondary students completing the two required courses will not have
to repeat the core in postsecondary. When the recommended sequence is followed, the
structure allows students to complete at specified points for employment or remain for advanced
training or cross-training. A student who completes the applicable competencies at any
occupational completion point may either continue with the training program or exit as an
occupational completer.

The two courses in the core are:

               8417100 - Health Science 1 (one credit)
               8417110 - Health Science 2 (one credit)

The following table illustrates the secondary program structure:

             8417110         Health Science 2                      1 credit                    2

Laboratory Activities

Laboratory activities are an integral part of this program. These activities include instruction in
the use of safety procedures, tools, equipment, materials, and processes related to these
occupations. Equipment and supplies should be provided to enhance hands-on experiences for
students.

This program requires a clinical component of approximately 50% the length of the
program.

Special Notes

For each skill set, the teacher certification used must also be able to teach programs that
encompass the competencies being taught. The teacher certifications that teach the individual
skill sets should be experienced and capable in the skills themselves in order to teach.

The course Anatomy and Physiology (2000350) may be substituted for the course Health
Science 1.

When Health Science 1 and Health Science 2 are completed they may be substituted for
one science credit in Anatomy and Physiology (2000350).

Following the completion of Health Science 1 and Health Science 2, the student is eligible to
take the National Health Care Foundation Skill Standards Assessment with instructor approval
and the completion of a portfolio.

This program meets the Department of Health HIV/AIDS Domestic Violence and Prevention of
Medical Errors education requirements. Upon completion of this program, the instructor will
provide a certificate to the student verifying that these requirements have been met.

If students in this program are seeking a licensure, certificate or registration through the
Department of Health, please refer to 456.0635 F.S. for more information on disqualification for
a license, certificate, or registration through the Department of Health.

Health Occupations Students of America, Inc. (HOSA) is the appropriate career and technical
student organization for providing leadership training and reinforcing specific career and
technical skills. Career and Technical Student Organizations provide activities for students as
an integral part of the instruction offered. The activities of such organizations are defined as
part of the curriculum in accordance with Rule 6A-6.065, F.A.C.

Cooperative Training – OJT

On-the-job training is appropriate but not required for this program. Whenever offered, the
rules, guidelines, and requirements specified in the OJT framework apply.

Essential Skills

Essential skills identified by the Division of Career and Adult Education have been integrated
into the standards and benchmarks of this program. These skills represent the general
knowledge and skills considered by industry to be essential for success in careers across all
career clusters. Students preparing for a career served by this program at any level should be
able to demonstrate these skills in the context of this program. A complete list of Essential
Skills and links to instructional resources in support of these Essential Skills are published on
the CTE Essential Skills page of the FL-DOE website
(http://www.fldoe.org/workforce/dwdframe/essential_skills.asp).

Accommodations

Federal and state legislation requires the provision of accommodations for students with
disabilities as identified on the secondary student’s IEP or 504 plan or postsecondary student’s
accommodations’ plan to meet individual needs and ensure equal access. Postsecondary
students with disabilities must self-identify, present documentation, request accommodations if
needed, and develop a plan with their counselor and/or instructors. Accommodations received
in postsecondary education may differ from those received in secondary education.
Accommodations change the way the student is instructed. Students with disabilities may need
accommodations in such areas as instructional methods and materials, assignments and
assessments, time demands and schedules, learning environment, assistive technology and
special communication systems. Documentation of the accommodations requested and
provided should be maintained in a confidential file.

In addition to accommodations, some secondary students with disabilities (students with an
Individual Educational Plan (IEP) served in Exceptional Student Education or ESE) will need
modifications to meet their needs. Modifications change the outcomes or what the student is
expected to learn, e.g., modifying the curriculum of a secondary career and technical education
course. Note postsecondary curriculum cannot be modified.

Some secondary students with disabilities (ESE) may need additional time (i.e., longer than the
regular school year), to master the student performance standards associated with a regular
Occupational Completion Point (OCP) or a Modified Occupational Completion Point (MOCP). If
needed, a student may enroll in the same career and technical course more than once.
Documentation should be included in the IEP that clearly indicates that it is anticipated that the
student may need an additional year to complete an OCP/MOCP. The student should work on
different competencies and new applications of competencies each year toward completion of
the OCP/MOCP. After achieving the competencies identified for the year, the student earns
credit for the course. It is important to ensure that credits earned by students are reported

                                                                                   Revised: 2/6/2013



accurately. The district’s information system must be designed to accept multiple credits for the
same course number (for eligible students with disabilities).
