1 Biomedical/Allied Health Magnet Program

2 Welcome to BMAH! With 3.2 million jobs expected to be created between now and 2018 in the healthcare field, the AACPS BioMedical Allied Health (BMAH) Magnet program embraces one of the fastest growing career fields in the country. BMAH is a four-year (grades 9-12) educational choice that gives highly motivated and academically eligible students the opportunity to explore and engage directly with the health care industry. BMAH s solid instructional program combines project-based learning and interactions with medical/allied health professionals to prepare students for post-high school academic and career success. Through BMAH related competitions and research courses, students will gain real-world experience and training in investigative techniques and practical knowledge that could one day be used to save a life.

3 Before we begin General Magnet Program Information All AACPS Magnet Programs Offer students a specialized course of study or an emphasis on instruction that is different from the traditional curriculum offered in AACPS. Are a key component of Anne Arundel County s vision for Programs of Choice. Attract qualified students from all areas of the county who complete an admission process. Are public school programs and do not involve any additional cost to attend. o Some programs may have lab, field trip, or exam fees. Provide transportation through regional consolidated community bus stops. o Private transportation is required to and from the community bus stops. Most bus stops are located at local elementary schools, middle schools, or libraries.

4 What benefits does BMAH offer? A curriculum that weaves health care topics through all courses; The chance to learn with students who share the same passion for the health care fields from all parts of Anne Arundel County; Access to 21 st century technology as an important part of the classroom; Project/Problem-based learning that challenges students to consider, discuss, and solve real-world, hands-on problems; Frequent opportunities to explore healthcare careers through job shadows and internships; Community and industry partnerships with major hospitals and institutions in the Baltimore/Washington Professional Corridor; and Educational partnerships with local colleges and universities to prepare for academic success after high school.

6 BMAH Pathways of Study BMAH students get to choose from one of the following Pathways of Study to follow through their four years in the BMAH Magnet Program: Public/International Health BioMedical Science BioTech Engineering Aging and Wellness Health, Information, and Technology Although most of the classes that BMAH students take in 9 th grade will be related generally to the biomedical and allied health fields, as students move through the four years of the BMAH program, their classes will become more focused on their chosen pathway.

7 What classes do BMAH students take? Medical Rounds Walking Wellness BMAH Social Issues (Honors Social Studies) BMAH Art Honors Mathematics Honors English Honors Science Honors World Language Project Lead the Way (PTLW) The BMAH program is the only school in the state to offer both PLTW Bioengineering and PLTW Biomedicine. All courses have overlays that reflect biomedical topics.

8 What will students do in Medical Rounds? Medical Rounds Are 4 to 6 week modules of in-depth, project/problem-based learning focused on a specific BMAH-related issue. Use Socratic discussions to challenge students to consider interesting and relevant health care topics. Often include visits from BMAH professionals familiar with the current topic. Medical Round topics may include: What happens to your body in space? Discover and discuss issues surrounding extended space travel and meet with an astronaut who has experienced those issues first-hand. Can music and art act as medicine? Study the importance of art in the healing process and meet with a community Specialist of Alternative Medicine. Is Technology a medical field? Discuss the role that technology plays in the health care industry and study the types of 21 st technology used every day in the medical world.

9 What will students do in Walking Wellness? In Walking Wellness students Have the opportunity to discuss relevant issues in an informal setting while improving their full-body health. Spend 45 minutes every other day listening to podcasts related to their current Medical Rounds module, considering discussion questions, and sharing their thoughts with other students. Use technology to keep a record of their vital statistics (pulse, heart rate, etc) and nutritional health data so they can track changes and improvements to their health over the school year.

10 What will students do in BMAH Social Issues? BMAH Social Issues Asks students to consider 21 st century social issues that are extremely relevant in today s world. Pushes students to think about difficult problems and controversial issues professionals in the health care fields have face each and every day. Functions as the Social Studies course for BMAH students. BMAH Social Issue topics may include: How poverty impacts the health of children Pandemic diseases in four regions of the world and how each of these diseases could be erased with a clean source of water Genetically Modified Foods are they harmful to your health? Complementary and Alternative Medicines such as Eastern medicines, herbal medicines, acupuncture, and yoga

11 Here is a sample Grade 9 schedule* Grade 9 Fall Semester Period/Block A Day B Day 1 Walking Wellness BMAH Social Issues BMAH Social Issues Walking Wellness BMAH Fundamentals of Art BMAH Medical Rounds BMAH Medical Rounds BMAH Fundamental of Art 2 BMAH Honors English 9 Honors Geometry** 3 Elective*** BMAH Honors Biology 4 Spanish, Level II**** Principals of Engineering (PLTW) *This schedule serves as an example of a typical ninth grade student s schedule. Your student s schedule may look different. **Students will register for Honors Geometry, Honors Algebra II, or Honors Pre-Calculus as determined by their current Math level. ***9 th grade BMAH students may only chose one elective. (This mirrors the STEM magnet program option for 9 th graders). A student may take 1 credit of the same elective all year or ½ credit of different electives each semester in ninth grade ****A student s world language level will be determined by his or her current World Language

12 Applying to the BMAH Program As with all AACPS Magnet Schools, students must complete an application process and be determined eligible for the BMAH program. Students can apply to the BMAH program in the fall of their 8 th grade year.

13 The Magnet Application Process: The Application 1. Information Nights: Attend the BMAH Information Night in the fall to visit the magnet school, meet the BMAH facilitators and teachers, and learn more about the program. Visit the Magnet Website ( for details on any upcoming Information Nights. 2. The Application: Complete the online Magnet Application by the posted deadline. The Magnet Application opens in the fall and will remain open for approximately two months. The Magnet Application is posted at 3. The Interview: Sign-up for and complete a Challenge Interview. Information about the Challenge Interview is available on the Magnet Website ( This information may vary from year to year.

14 The Magnet Application Process: Evaluation 4. Evaluation: The magnet office uses the following criteria to determine whether or not a student is eligible for BMAH: a) 7 th and 8 th grade academic records b) MSA scores c) Math and World Language classes taken d) Interview scores Students may be eligible through one of two pathways These pathways are not a ranking system, but rather determine what the student will need to complete during the application process. Pathway I* Students must have: A minimum of a B average (3.0 grade average) in grade 7 Current enrollment in, or successful completion of Algebra I with a B (80%) or better Current enrollment in, or successful completion of Level 1 of a World Language with a C (70%) or better Scores of Proficient or Advanced in MSA Reading and Mathematics in grade 7 or scores in the 60 percentile or above on nationally-normed tests in Reading and Mathematics An average rubric score of a 7 or better on the Magnet Challenge Interview

15 The Magnet Application Process: Evaluation (continued) Pathway II* Students must have: A minimum of a mid-c average (2.5 grade average) in grade 7 Current enrollment in or successful completion of Algebra I with a C or better OR Successful completion of STEMath 7 with a B or better AND current enrollment in STEMath 8 with a B or better.

Both Pathway I and Pathway II students are treated equally in the Lottery.

16 The Magnet Application Process: The Lottery and Registration 5. The Lottery: Because there are often more eligible applicants for each Magnet program than seats available, a computerized, random Lottery is usually conducted for to place students either in the program or on a wait-list. It is the belief of the Magnet Office that a Lottery is the most fair way to all students to determine who is given a seat in a Magnet Program. Students placed on the wait-list will be offered a seat as space becomes avaiable in the program 6. Registration: Accepted students will attend a Welcome and Registration Night for their program to learn information about the: Enrollment process Summer reading assignment BMAH Summer Bridge a two week summer experience for students to engage in focused BMAH experiences
