Estancia Medical Academy
EMA (Estancia Medical Academy)
Eight months ago the Estancia Medical Academy was only an idea. Since that time it has grown into a program that is attracting an enormous amount of interest exposing students to a variety of careers in the medical field. The program is home to over 120 students who are taking classes like Sports Medicine, Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). This pathway appeals to a large group of students with a variety of career goals ranging from medical office assistant to medical doctors.
What is EMA???
The (EMA) Estancia Medical Academy is a "school within a school" program that combines academic instruction with specialized training in that perspective health profession. Our goal of the program is to expose students to the diverse careers and the opportunities available in the health care industry. Students that are interested in joining the EMA program will begin their experience in the sophomore year taking two classes for a total of one year. Those classes will be Introduction to Health Careers, and Medical Terminology. Their journey continues into their junior year taking a full year of Sports Medicine. And then as a senior, students will conclude the program with Emergency Medical Responder. The EMA program is taught by 2 teachers, Mr. Hayato Yuuki and Ms. Krista Schweers. Mr Yuuki teaches the Health Careers and the EMR classes, and Ms. Schweers teaches Sports Medicine. All EMA classes are held in room 268 in the World Languages Court.
CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
As a Senior, students that take the Emergency Medical Responder class will each have the opportunity to pass and complete all steps required to receive an official American Heart Association CPR card. With this card, students are able to perform infant/child/adult CPR and are able to officially use the AED (Automatic External Defibrillator).
The CTE Medallion
The purpose of the CTE Medallion is to acknowledge graduating seniors who demonstrate superior performance in their chosen CTE pathway.
How do I get a CTE Medallion and what do I get out of it???
How does a student get a CTE Medallion?
In order for students to get an approved CTE Medallion, they have to successfully complete 2 things. First, they have to successfully complete all courses that comprise a specific, district recognized CTE pathway, (EMA counts as a CTE pathway), such that a minimum of 5 courses are completed of which 2 are either ROP or college. Second, the student must participate in one internship, job shadow and/or mentorship related to that specific CTE pathway for a minimum of 20 hours.
What does the student get out of the CTE Medallion?
Medallion recipients get to wear their Medallion over their graduation robes and sit in the first few rows of graduation ceremony. (Varies by school) They will get acknowledgment from the principal as well.
