P-TECH is a four- to six-year program during which students earn a high school diploma, no-cost associate's degree, and first-in-line status for job placement. At Dunbar, P-TECH focuses on health sciences and has partnerships with Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland, and Kaiser Permanente. Students work with leading professionals, are paired with an industry mentor, participate in paid summer internships, acquire industry certifications, and earn tuition-free associate's degrees in nursing, respiratory therapy, or physical therapy.
