Fort Wayne Community Schools (FWCS) announced that its health science program at the FWCS Career Center will be moving to a new home at the beginning of next school year.
By moving the program to the Parkview Education Center, the school corporation will expand its partnership with Parkview. The space-sharing arrangement with Parkview and Ivy Tech has a wealth of benefit for the students. They will have exposure to new state-of-the-art medical equipment, opportunities to interact and collaborate with faculty, students and staff at Parkview and Ivy Tech.
Superintendent Robinson said “This will give our students, who are our future doctors, nurses and medical professionals, direct access to those working in those fields today, as well as access to high-tech classrooms and mock patient and surgery rooms. This expansion has been a goal of FWCS and Parkview for many years.”
In addition to the program offerings of Introduction to Health Careers, Introduction to Medical Assisting, Dental Careers, and Certified Nursing Assistant, the move creates an opportunity to pursue additional health science programs in the future.
