    Sports Medicine students

    Welcome to Alhambra's Medical Magnet Department page. The Medical Magnet exists to help students who are interested in a career in the Medical field by exposing them to the requirements of the field of medicine they are interested in. These include the amount of education needed, the schools which offer this education and the kinds of classes which should be taken in high school to prepare for education after high school. Technical and professional schools have cooperated in developing curriculums which will ready students for their respective schools. Field trips and speakers are provided to give students first hand experience with schools, professions and duties performed by Medical professionals.
