Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA)

HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) is a national student organization with a two-fold mission geared at promoting career opportunities in the healthcare industry and enhancing the delivery of quality healthcare to all people.  HOSA’s goal is to encourage all health occupations instructors and students to join and be actively involved in the HOSA and Health Science Technology Education (HSTE) Partnership.  

HOSA offers a unique program of leadership development, motivation and recognition exclusively for secondary, postsecondary, adult and collegiate students enrolled in HSTE programs.  HOSA is 100% healthcare!

HOSA is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the HSTE Division of the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE).
