Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA)

 HOSA is an international student organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Education (HSE) Division of ACTE. 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 students enrolled in health science education and biomedical science programs or have interests in pursuing careers in health professions. HOSA is 100% health care!

HOSA is not a club to which a few students in school join. Rather, HOSA is a powerful instructional tool that works best when it is integrated into the HSE curriculum and classroom. HSE instructors are committed to the development of the total person.

Those who join the HSE-HOSA Partnership recognize the importance of providing students with training far beyond the basic technical skills needed for entry into the health care field.

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.

HOSA's mission is especially critical when considering the acute shortage of qualified workers for the health care industry

Purpose
The purpose of the HOSA organization is to develop leadership and technical HOSA skill competencies through a program of motivation, awareness and recognition, which is an integral part of the Health Science Education instructional program.
Mission
The mission of HOSA is to enhance the delivery of compassionate, quality health care by providing opportunities for knowledge, skill and leadership development of all health science education students, therefore, helping the student meet the needs of the health care community.


Goals
The goals that HOSA believes are vital to each member are:
• To promote physical, mental and social well-being.
• To develop effective leadership qualities and skills.
• To develop the ability to communicate more effectively with people.
• To develop character.
• To develop responsible citizenship traits.
• To understand the importance of pleasing oneself as well as being of service to others.
• To build self-confidence and pride in one's work.
• To make realistic career choices and seek successful employment in the health care field.
• To develop an understanding of the importance in interacting and cooperating with other students and organizations.
• To encourage individual and group achievement.
• To develop an understanding of current health care issues, environmental concerns, and survival needs of the community, the nation and the world.
