Health-Related Professions (HRP) Program
Murrah High School offers the only health-related professions program in the state of Mississippi for grades 9-12. The HRP program is an innovative cooperative learning opportunity designed to prepare students for health-related careers in the 21st Century and beyond. Its mission is to provide historically under-represented and under-served students with a quality education that will allow them to become articulate in spoken word, masterful in writing, analytical in thought and prepared to enter and complete post-secondary studies in a chosen health career.
Students who participate in the health-related professions program at Murrah take a rigorously challenging curriculum that is science-oriented, complemented by advanced math and technology courses. In addition to the academic curriculum, numerous opportunities to narrow health-related career choices are provided to students through field trips, mentors from the medical fields, internships, and university partnerships.
