    Project Lead the Way Biomedical Sciences Program is a nation-wide program that provides highly qualified high school and their students the funding and resources to provide a strong learning foundation and a proven path to college and medical career success.  The Biomedical Academy at Soldan High School has state of the art lab equipment and has a strong relationship with St. Louis University, Washington University as well as University of Missouri-St. Louis. 

    Here students go through the nationally approved sequence of biomedical science curriculum; which focuses on a hands-on, real-world problem-solving approach to learning.  Students explore the concepts of human medicine and disease and are introduced to bio-engineering, including mapping and analyzing DNA.  Through real-life experiences like dissecting a heart, students examine the processes, structures and interactions of the human body – often playing the role of biomedical professionals to solve a mysterious death.  Students will be down real-life labs and activities that professional scientists and doctors perform.

    This program is for students who like doing experiments in science and want to get into the field of medicine.  The Biomedical Science program accepts a limited number of students who enter as incoming freshmen and continue for the full four years.   In their senior year, each student shadows a professional biomedical scientist or professional of their career choice and get real hands-on training in Biomedical Innovation.  Professions that the students will be exposed to range from a registered nurse to a forensic scientist to a heart surgeon.  The opportunities are endless.
