Nov. 4, 2021: Toledo Public Schools (TPS), in partnership
with ProMedica, has announced that renovations are
underway on its newest magnet school: the Toledo Pre-Medical
and Health Science Academy.
The school will focus on Biomedical Science, Pre-Medicine,
Pre-Nursing and all Health Science fields. At the academy,
students will have the opportunity upon graduation to begin an
entry-level career in the medical field or choose to attend
college and further their education.
Using state-of-the-art labs and a hands-on curriculum, the
students’ experience will mirror that of professionals’
experience in the medical industry. “Toledo Public Schools is
committed to providing multiple pathways to create college and
career ready graduates. Through Toledo Pre-Medical and Health
Science Academy, we will be able to develop a pipeline from high
school to industry that will not only increase the number of
health care workers in our community, but will also contribute
to the overall workforce and economic development of Toledo,”
said Dr. Romules Durant, superintendent and chief
executive officer of Toledo Public Schools. “We are grateful to
partner with and have our students learn from an organization
like ProMedica that leads both locally and nationally in health
care, Durant added.
It is anticipated that the ProMedica partnership will provide
educational opportunities, mentorship, internships and thought
leadership to the students and school administration. This will
ensure the academy remains innovative and in touch with current
and changing job markets.
”Preparing students for a career in the medical field is
increasingly more important as a larger percentage of our
population grows older,” said Randy Oostra, president and
CEO of ProMedica. “Like many parts of our nation, our region
faces significant medical professional shortages. Through
partnerships and forward-thinking initiatives like
Pre-Medical and Health Science Academy, we can work to
minimize those shortages and help ensure access to clinical
excellence in our region for generations to come.”
Toledo Pre-Medical and Health Science Academy is currently
seeking to fill 72 seats for its initial class of 2026. For more
