Welcome To Mountain Home High School's HOSA Chapter
HOSA, an acronym for Health Occupation Students of America, is an international program that helps to promote and meet the needs of health care students.
At the secondary level, HOSA offers competitive events that help the students through researching, promoting and presenting their future health interests. It uses classroom based assignments for competitive events.
Our organization teaches through real career experiences that students will need in their future jobs as healthcare providers.
We also do many community activities to create well rounded individuals that give back to their community. HOSA helps students academically (as well as socially) and provides networking opportunities, leadership positions, scholarships, and even elite internships with the US Office of the Surgeon General.
Classes Affiliated with HOSA
At Mountain Home High School, we are involved in these classes: Introduction to Health Occupations, Medical Terminology, Anatomy and Physiology, Certified Nursing Assistant Certification, and Pharmacy Technician Certification. All classes can prepare students for engaging competitions and future success in their careers.
HOSA state competition is held annually in Boise, ID. If a student wins in the state competition, they have the opportunity to move on to HOSA International Leadership Competition, which has been held in locations like Disney World in Orlando, Washington DC, and states like Texas and California. HOSA provides amazing opportunities to travel, compete in your chosen area of study, and meet others who want to pursue a health career. The sky's the limit!
It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
