    The Academy of Health Sciences prepares students for various health related careers and provides students with an opportunity to complete all prerequisites required to earn an Associate of Science in Biology. This will allow students to enter directly into a bachelor’s program, only needing to complete the advanced courses related to their area of study. The partnership with University of Texas MD Anderson School of Health Professions exposes students to program-related experiences and to a real world sense of the industry they could potentially enter upon completion of a bachelor’s program.

    The Academy of Health Sciences at Westside provides two tracks for students that lead to health related careers: Track one leads students into Clinical Lab Science, Cytogenetic Technology, Cytotechnology, Histotechnology, or Molecular Genetic Technology. Track two leads students into Diagnostic Imaging, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Medical Dosimetry, or Radiation Therapy.
