About Flathead High School Biomedical Academy

Students play the roles of biomedical professionals as they investigate and study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. In the PLTW Biomedical Science program, students engage in activities like investigating the death of a fictional person or dissecting a sheep’s heart, learning content in the context of real-world cases. They examine the structures and interactions of human body systems and explore the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a disease. Students work collaboratively to understand and design solutions to the most pressing health challenges. The future of biomedical science comes alive in this rigorous and relevant four-course sequence that prepares students to continue their studies through post-secondary education and careers.
