Biomedical Magnet Program
Magnet Program is a competitive entrance student cohort of the
nationally-recognized Wheaton High School Project Lead The Way program.
Motivated students have the opportunity to participate in a four-year
sequence of rigorous math, science, and medicine courses. Through a
hands-on and collaborative approach, students explore prevention,
diagnosis, and treatment of disease to design innovative solutions for
today’s health challenges. Students explore multiple medical fields to
develop a strong foundation for success in university pre-medical,
medical, and biomedical programs.
Students will have the opportunity to:
- Participate in an internship at the National Institutes of Health, The George Washington University or another local science facility.
- Work with university medical school students and other medical professionals specific to a student’s area of interest.
- Earn college credit in courses taught by college professors.
- Compete in scientific competitions at the local, state, and national level.
