The Health Professions Institute Magnet High School challenges students with a rigorous academic curriculum that includes learning through traditional lectures, lab activities, interactive classrooms, visits to professional settings and senior internships in a chosen area of interest.
Students receive hands-on lessons in the school’s state-of-the-art medical simulation facility, as well as participate in educational visits to magnet partners, such as Metropolitan Methodist Health System, University Health System and the University of Texas Health Science Center.
These real-world learning opportunities are a key element of the curriculum allowing students to witness first-hand how textbook knowledge is applied in a professional setting at hospitals, university facilities, research laboratories and clinics. Students are able to develop learning relationships with health professionals throughout the community through educational visits, contact with visiting physicians and participation in seminars, summer camps and summer volunteer programs within the health sector.
The magnet introduces students to and provides a foundation for careers in medicine, including nursing, physician’s assistant, pharmacy, forensics and microbiology.

Medical Terminology -9th grade
Health Science Theory- 10th grade
Anatomy & Physiology – 11th grade
