Bioscience

BioScience is in the news almost every day! It encompasses the medical and dental fields. It is a part of feeding our world and taking care of pets and livestock.

Problems related to the environment and solving crimes are also part of the BioScience field. If you love to learn by doing, this lab-based program will expose you to all of these fields.

    Curriculum Highlights

    This 2-year program emphasizes lab skills usually only practiced in college or out in the field. These include micropipetting, cell culturing of bacteria, making serial dilutions, understanding and performing tasks utilizing aseptic technique, PCR and gel electrophoresis, and spectrophotometry. Students will learn these skills as they explore the world of anatomy/physiology and advanced biology (BioScience).

    Career Outlook

    As of 2015, over 5 million Ohio residents were employed in the BioScience field. There has been a 14% increase in the number of BioScience Companies here in Ohio*. The average income for those who are employed in the BioScience field is $66,341.

    “In 2014, the Research and Development subsector employed the most workers (16,469), which accounted for 24% of Ohio’s total BioScience employment. Next in line was Medical Product Distribution with 15,201 (22%) and Medical and Testing Laboratories with 13,239 (19%). The Research and Development subsector had the largest payroll ($1.4 billion) while the largest average wage was paid by  rms in
    Pharmaceuticals and Therapeutics ($93,654). Despite having the smallest average wage ($50,448), the Medical and Testing Laboratories subsector still exceeds the statewide average.**”
