Welcome to DHS HOSA - Future Health Professionals

Our organization is for students who are interested in Health Care Professions. We meet twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays . We discuss different health care professions as well as developing skills in communication, team work, and time management. 

We have competitions in 57 categories, ranging from taking knowledge tests to performing skills in front of judges.  The competitions are held at the district, state and national levels. Students who compete and place 1st, 2nd or 3rd advance to the next level. We have advanced to the National level for 8 consecutive years, taking home 1st place in Community Awareness in 2008, 8th place in Nursing Assistant in 2009, 4th place  in Research Persuasive Speaking in 2010, and 7th place in Personal Care in 2013, This past year we placed 8th in the Nation in Medical Reading in California. This year we will be headed off to Tennessee.

If you are interested in joining HOSA a club for future health professionals then please attend a meeting to find out what we are all about.
