Program Description

HOSA is a state and national Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for those who are interested in pursuing a career in the health fields. HOSA provides students - in middle, secondary, and postsecondary schools - with opportunities to develop leadership, career, and personal skills needed by health care providers. Our goal is to encourage all health science instructors and students to join and be actively involved in the HSE-HOSA Partnership.

HOSA operates as an integral component of the health science education curriculum. Through its association of state and local chapters, HOSA provides powerful instructional tools, recognition, leadership, networking, scholarships, and connections with the healthcare industry to thousands of members across the United States.

Through the HOSA Competitive Events Program, members have the opportunity to showcase their health care and leadership skills in over 55 different events related to all aspects of the health care industry. HOSA integrates into the Health Science Technology Education curriculum seamlessly to develop and recognize smart, dedicated, and passionate future health professionals.
