HOYA II is a combination of on-site clinical work experiences and academics that are required to enter a particular health career or health-industry area.  Student will interview and work on-site with a professional for an average of eight hours per week to total 128 hours per semester and a cumulative total of 255 during the entirety of course. Additional time is spent on academics that enable the student to pursue a post-secondary degree or certification in the health-care field. Students will study Medical Terminology as well as explore national and regional practices of health care. This will include not only careers in healthcare, but projections of health-care needs locally as well as globally, access to health-care advocacy for health programs, managing the delivery of health services, diverse populations served in healthcare and the challenges involved, and an overview of changing health-care behaviors. Students will work actively with community resources while studying national and global behaviors in comparison. Students will meet Monday through Wednesday in the classroom from 1-2:30 for academic instruction. Students will need the one step TB test before class begins. *TB test or lab test can be done at the Health Department for a fee. Appointments should be made. Aligning with health-care standards, students will be subject to random and reasonable suspicion of alcohol and drug screenings; students will be removed from the program if they test positive. Students study Medical Terminology and Health Care Delivery and upon successful completion of the exam will earn college credits through HCC: NURS 117 and HLTH 101.  Students must provide their transportation to and from the internship work site, community service activities and possibly to the classroom and the work site.
