Why Choose Medical Pathways?

The medical field continues to be one of the fastest growing industries in the 21st century.

Successful candidates applying to post secondary programs have sustained study and practice in the sciences, math, and the humanities as well as internship experiences.

It is these factors that led Novato High to design and implement the Medical Careers Pathway @ NHS. We are excited to offer this four year Pathway in 2017, beginning with the Class of 2021. The initial cohort is 29 students.
