Middle School HOSA is Here


HOSA-Future Health Professionals welcomes a new organizational division, the Middle School Division.  At the National Leadership Conference, the 2015 Delegate Assembly voted to recognize the Middle School Division as a separate entity beginning with the 2015-2016 membership year.

Starting a Middle School HOSA Chapter will give students in grades 6-8 interested in or planning to pursue a career in the health professions. It gives them an opportunity to Connect, become Informed and Visualize being a Future Health Professional.

Middle school members will be offered the following competitive events at the National level. In 2015-2016, all event guidelines will remain the same for Middle school, Secondary, and Postsecondary members.

  • Extemporaneous Health Poster
  • Health Career Display
  • Health Education
  • Healthy Lifestyle
  • Medical Terminology
  • Prepared Speaking
  • Public Health
  • Speaking Skills

In addition to the events listed above, middle school members can also be recognized in the following Recognition Events:

  • Barbara James Service Award
  • HOSA Chapter Reflection (formerly Outstanding Chapter)
  • HOSA Happenings
  • HOSA Marketing Challenge
  • National Service Project

This opportunity could help grow and groom your High School HOSA Chapters by mentoring and partnering with projects.
