Medical Innovations Pathway

The MIP pathway lets you take classes and gain real-world experience as you participate in required work-based learning and courses. At the end of the pathway, you receive a certificate and are guaranteed a job interview with all participating employers.

Take the class

Contact your CTE coordinator to determine if the medical innovations pathway (MIP) program is available in your school district. Next, you’ll want to decide which track interests you. The program offers two tracks to choose from, device manufacturing or laboratory. Your CTE coordinator will help you enroll in the required courses for your track. Check out the coursework you’ll need to earn your certificate:

Device Manufacturing Track
  • Manufacturing Principles 1
  • BioManufacturing 1


Laboratory Track

  • Biotechnology (a two-semester course)

Use the skills

Take the skills you’re learning in the classroom and see where they apply in a real work setting. Your CTE coordinator will connect you with our partnered employers to participate in a minimum of two industry experiences with different employers, where you can observe various professionals at work and discover future career opportunities while building your network.
