Competitive Events


HOSA’s Competitive Events Program brings health careers education to life through rigorous testing of knowledge performance, skill, and leadership capabilities aimed at developing, encouraging, and recognizing the brightest future health professionals.  HOSA’s competitive events are divided into six (6) categories:

  • Health Science Events
  • Health Professions Events
  • Emergency Preparedness Events
  • Leadership Events
  • Teamwork Events
  • Recognition Events

HOSA members should believe in the competitive events program, not because of the awards to be received in competition, but because of the feeling of accomplishment and confidence gained in preparing for competition.  HOSA does not provide competition for competition’s sake; rather, HOSA provides a competitive events program as a means of recognizing those students who are willing to pursue excellence by preparing for competition and having the determination to attend a conference and demonstrate the competencies gained through the healthcare science program.
