Health Occupations Course

The Health Occupations Course is a partnership between Prosser Memorial Health and Prosser School District. This yearlong course is for selected high school seniors who are interested in pursuing health-related careers or have general healthcare and wellness interests.

Through experimental, observational and traditional classroom learning, students are exposed to the many aspects and features of healthcare. Students spend four days a week in rotations in different PMH departments—shadowing doctors, observing surgeries firsthand and riding along on EMS/ambulance calls, to name a few.

The other day of the week is spent in classroom-style learning with lessons focusing on everything from anatomy to CPR and nutrition. This combination of textbook and hands-on learning gives students additional knowledge to support their rotation experience.

Helping students attain:

  • Firsthand experience in a variety of healthcare settings
  • Valuable skills they can carry into their future careers
  • Knowledge that sets the ground work for future education
