Allied Health Middle College

Detroit Allied Health Middle College Partnership

The Detroit Allied Health Middle College High School (DAHMCHS) partnership is collaboration between WCCCD, Detroit Public Schools and the Detroit Medical Center.  The Middle College High School serves urban high 9th and 10th grade students. The instructional program is rigorous, relevant and focuses simultaneously on the core academics and the health sciences.  The DAHMCHS is designed to improve student achievement and increase access to health careers, at no cost to the student. The middle college course of study allows successful students to graduate with a high school diploma, and a certificate or associate degree and training in a marketable health occupation.  Ultimately, students would be prepared to meet ever-increasing opportunities in the health care field.

The project settings include Detroit area high schools, WCCCD campuses and hospital settings. Students receive support through a teacher lead advisory system called “focus groups” during which discussions are held with students regarding current events, personal issues, school issues and study skills.  Project Guidance Counselors interact daily with middle college students and provide a range of guidance services.  They help students to overcome problems that impede learning and assist them in making educational and career decisions.  A Medical Center Internship Coordinator plans and arranges for job shadowing, practicums and internships in hospital settings.        

Student Outcomes:

Students are provided personalized instruction, support services, enrichment and summer learning opportunities that will allow them to:

  • Earn a High School Diploma and Associate Degree simultaneously
  • Earn a Certificate of Completion in Pharmacy Technology, Phlebotomy, and Dental Lab Tech
  • Be eligible for admission to a Program of Focus (i.e. Nursing, Surgical Technology, Dental Hygiene)
