Bartow County School System has partnered with Cartersville Medical Center to offer students a behind-the-scenes look at the medical industry through exposure to healthcare professionals and hospital departments.

During the 2019-2020 school year, the Bartow County School System anticipates the development of a comprehensive core curriculum based on recommendations from Cartersville Medical Center. Once complete, the specialized program will officially launch in 2020 with the first cohort of freshman magnet students, a news release from Bartow County School System said.

“We are extremely excited to be the healthcare sponsoring facility for The Center for Advanced Studies in Medical Sciences at Woodland High School,” Cartersville Medical Center CEO Chris Mosley said in the news release.

All students in and around Bartow County can apply for acceptance into The Center for Advanced Studies in Medical Sciences at Woodland High School beginning this winter.

“The benefit of the Medical Sciences program is mutual for Cartersville Medical Center and BCSS,” Mosley said. “The school system, particularly Woodland High School, will have a sponsoring healthcare facility with resources, expertise and real-life experience opportunities. The benefit to the hospital is our investment of time and talent, providing opportunities for the best and brightest students to obtain great experience and exposure so they may have a competitive advantage when applying to colleges and universities. It is our hope that these students will return to our community and be the future of healthcare in Bartow County.”
