dTHS Medical Science Academy Students Take Cardiovascular System Studies to the Next Level

One of the most unique programs at de Toledo High School is our Medical Science Academy, a three-year specialized course of study encompassing college preparatory academics, lab work, surgery internships, and international medical missions for students interested in pursuing careers in medicine or nursing.

This past week, dTHS Medical Science Academy students took part in an especially memorable, hands-on assignment in their anatomy and physiology classes… the dissecting of real-life sheep hearts!

As part of their study of the cardiovascular system, this was an incredibly powerful opportunity for our students and one we know they’ll take with them into their future research careers.

Located in the San Fernando Valley portion of the City of Los Angeles in Northern Los Angeles County. de Toledo High School is accredited by the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS), the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and Builders of Jewish Education (BJE,) and financially supported by the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles and the Jim Joseph Foundation.
