HOSA: Health Occupations
HOSA’s twofold mission is to promote career opportunities in the healthcare industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. HOSA’s mission is especially critical when considering the acute shortage of qualified workers for the health care industry.
HOSA is organized on local, state, and national levels. Health Science teachers, advisors, and advisory councils guide local chapters. State advisors and committee members coordinate chapter activities for the national organization. HOSA provides a unique program of leadership development, motivation,and recognition.
HOSA works best when it is integrated into the Health Science Education curriculum and classroom. Participation in HOSA Future Health Professionals provides students with the critical soft-skill development that is essential in the 21st century employee.
