Health Sciences High and Middle College (HSHMC) is a school where students earn diplomas that matter! In partnership with Sharp Healthcare, SDSU professors, and San Diego Community College, HSHMC staff will ensure that each student has positive and meaningful experiences throughout high school while achieving academic and social success in a vocational program setting. HSHMC students will earn high school diplomas, complete college entrance requirements, and have opportunities to earn community college credits, degrees, or vocational certificates. In addition, students will work with healthcare professionals through job shadowing and internships to explore real-world applications of their school-based knowledge and skills as well as future career choices. Students will graduate with pride in their diplomas that represent a well-rounded, meaningful, and useful well as a plan for their futures.

Due to the current flu epidemic, Sharp has asked that our interns not attend their internships at the hospitals until the end of January. This is for our students' protection and the protection of Sharp's patients. Given that your student's internship is part of a UC class, we have alternative plans in place and it is very important that students school attend on their internship days.
