MedPath Program Overview


MedPath is one of the five special academic paths that is offered to students at Cathedral Prep. The program offers students the opportunity to take specific courses that will get them prepared for the medical field, as well as giving students the chance to listen to speakers, attend career days, and giving them an advanced understanding of the medical field.

“I have enjoyed my time in the MedPath program,” senior Tyler Irons said. “It has given me outstanding opportunities to explore the medical field to a degree that I did not think that I would be able to in high school. I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in pursuing anything medically related.”

Mrs. Meghan Fuhrman is the faculty coordinator for the program. This is her first year in charge of MedPath, and she is hitting the ground running with her plan for the program.

“I have quite a few goals that I would like to accomplish as MedPath coordinator,” Mrs. Fuhrman said, “The biggest goal that I have is to get students exposed to as many different options as possible in the medical field. I would also like to get the students exposure to the field by offering more job shadowing experiences and getting them into research laboratories.”

The students who are currently enrolled in the program are very excited by the experiences that they have now and are excited to see how the program grows.

“My last few years in the program have been amazing,” senior Emily Huber said. “My freshman and sophomore years were impacted by COVID, but last year was great. We got to listen to presenters discuss their work experiences, had the opportunities to go on field trips, and even got the chance to tour behind the scenes at UPMC.”

The courses that are currently being offered through the program will only be expanded upon in the coming years.

“College Board is going to add Anatomy and Physiology as an AP course soon,” Mrs. Fuhrman said. “I am very hopeful as to what the coming school years will bring for our students. I encourage everyone to at least consider taking part in this amazing program that we offer here at Prep.”
