What is HOSA?
HOSA is an international student organization with the two-fold mission to promote career opportunities in the health care industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. HOSA's goal is to encourage all health science, instructors and students, to join and be actively involved in the HSE-HOSA Partnership.
HOSA provides a unique program of leadership development, motivation, and recognition exclusively for secondary, postsecondary, adult, and collegiate students enrolled in health science education and biomedical science programs and have interests in pursuing careers in health professions. HOSA is 100% health care!
If you are a health science teacher, then you may know HOSA is the world's largest high school health science student organization that places an emphasis on hands-on career and technical training. The classic curriculum taught in health-related classes works in conjunction from HOSA's own curriculum to provide your students with training in technical skills and leadership abilities. With a projected doctor shortage of 120,000 providers by 2030, HOSA is on a mission to bridge the gap, and train the next generation of health leaders!
