Future Health Professionals

The purpose of HOSA is to promote career opportunities in health care and to prepare students to successfully pursue a health career.

HOSA provides a unique program of leadership development, motivation, and recognition exclusively for secondary, postsecondary, adult and collegiate students enrolled in health occupations education programs

HOSA members have the opportunity to participate and/or compete in area, state and national leadership conferences. Motivated students polish their skills and receive a sense of self accomplishment as well as recognition.

HOSA provides opportunities for the student to make a well informed career choice among the many health occupations, which in turn aides the students in making a more realistic career goal. Students who are exposed to the health field in high school also tend to understand the need to be flexible for inevitable career changes.

HOSA provides leadership development by developing character and promoting responsible citizenship. Students develop an understanding of current healthcare issues and an awareness of environmental concerns through competition and classroom academics.

At CHS, membership in HOSA is open to all students in Health Science classes as well as students in Anatomy & Physiology, Pharmacy Tech, and Forensics.
