Health Science Career Cluster Critical Components

When considering implementation of a Health Science Career Cluster there are many questions to be answered and issues to be addressed. The National Consortium on Health Science Technology Education, utilizing more than 10 years of research and observation have identified the essential or Critical Components for successful and sustainable implementation of a cluster. The Critical Components are displayed in a hierarchal pyramid design demonstrating the criticality of the various levels as the cluster is implemented.

A complete "how to" toolkit for implementing a Health Science Career Cluster has been developed. Visit the Online Store for ordering information.
