Healthcare Explorers

Healthcare Explorers is the award-winning educational arm of Health City Cayman Islands, which has provided over 4,000 educational opportunities to students in the Cayman Islands since June of 2014 when we began with our first class of 18 students. Innovation is at the core of our success.

In 2017, we introduced webinars through which we have provided STEM education to 1,828 students to date. We are now pleased to take this learning pathway a step further and, for 2019-2020, we are pleased to introduce Healthcare Explorers On-Demand Courses. Through Healthcare Explorers On-Demand Courses, students and teachers will be able to learn from our world-class consultants, nurses and medical professionals at times that suit your pace.
Teachers will be now be able to use our courses, which are all benchmarked against the IGCSE/CXC curriculum as a part of their curriculum either in support of or in place of a learning unit. Every classroom teacher assigned can decide to use our built in assessments or substitute their own assessments to make the courses truly tailor-made for each classroom and school.

If you are a teacher and would like to use our on-demand courses in your classroom, please complete the registration.

Students can register directly for our courses and use them to support what they are learning in the classroom, as preparation for exams, or even to earn extra credit by arrangement with their teachers. Students participating in certain programs at Health City Cayman Islands, such as internships, will also be assigned courses to enhance your learning either by an Education Coordinator or a Consultant. If you are a student and would like to take one of our courses, please simply click on the course URL and register using your email address or a parents’ email address. Your parents are also welcome to register for the course as an ‘observer’.
