HOSA-Future Health Professionals is a student organization that encourages students interested in the field of health care to pursue their goals, develop their skills and cultivate networks within their chosen field.
HOSA membership is a part of an instructional program that prepares students for a health care career. Such programs can be found in:
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
HOW TO JOIN IF YOUR SCHOOL ALREADY HAS A CHAPTER
Contact the chapter advisor and obtain membership information.
HOW TO JOIN IF YOUR SCHOOL DOES NOT HAVE A CHAPTER
If your school has a health science program but no HOSA chapter, talk to the health career program instructor about starting a HOSA chapter. Many instructors respond favorably to students who wish to take responsibility for their leadership development. Talk with the instructor about possible alternatives that would enable your school to make available the important opportunities that HOSA membership offers.
HOW TO JOIN IF YOU ARE AT A COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY THAT DOES NOT HAVE A CHAPTER
The best option is to find a group of healthcare majors and organize a HOSA chapter. You will want to follow the rules of your school in starting a new club or service organization. You will also need a faculty member to agree to serve as your chapter advisor.
