High School Allied Health Program Supported by Baltimore Washington Medical Center

Baltimore Washington Medical CenterAnne Arundel County Public Schools Honors BWMC for Involvement in Health Magnet Program at Glen Burnie High School

Baltimore Washington Medical Center was recently honored by Anne Arundel County Public Schools for its involvement in the BioMedical Allied Health magnet program at Glen Burnie High School. More than 60 ninth-graders from across Anne Arundel County are participating in the first-year program which will help introduce and prepare students for a career in health care.

“We are pleased to partner with Glen Burnie High School and Anne Arundel County Public Schools for this very worthwhile program,” said Karen E. Olscamp, President and CEO of Baltimore Washington Medical Center. “As our population continues to grow and age, the demands for quality health care will continue to increase and the BioMedical Allied Health program helps develop today’s students into tomorrow’s health care leaders.”

The program allows students who are highly motivated and academically eligible to study and explore career opportunities across the spectrum of health-care professions. In conjunction with excellent coursework options, a quality part of a healthcare-bound student’s education is interaction with medical/allied health professionals in a job shadow or internship setting where mentoring and simulated practice with technology relevant to a targeted health care area is central to the experience.

Upon graduation, students will be ready to enter the healthcare workforce directly, continue their college education along their chosen allied-health pathway, or attend a four-year institution of higher learning to matriculate in a health care major.
