    Student Organization

    HOSA's two-fold mission is to promote career opportunities in the health care industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. HOSA provides a unique program of leadership development, motivation, and recognition exclusively for secondary students enrolled in health science education and biomedical science programs or have interests in pursuing careers in health professions.

    HOSA is not a club to which a few students in school join. Rather, it is a powerful instructional tool that works best when it is integrated into the health science related curriculum and classroom. The rapidly changing health care system needs dedicated workers who, in addition to their technical skills, are people-oriented and capable of playing a leadership or followership role as a member of a health care team.
