Medical Interventions is the third course offered in the Project Lead the Way Biomedical Program. This course is designed for 11-12 graders who have successfully completed Principles of Biomedical Sciences (PBS) and Human Body Systems (HBS). In this course, “students follow the life of a fictitious family as they investigate how to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. Students explore how to detect and fight infection; screen and evaluate the code in human DNA; evaluate cancer treatment options; and prevail when the organs of the body begin to fail. Through real-world cases, students are exposed to a range of interventions related to immunology, surgery, genetics, pharmacology, medical devices, and diagnostics.”
