Do you have an interest in medicine? Concordia’s HOSA Club may be a perfect fit for your academic resume. HOSA, Health Occupations Students of America, is a competitive club focused on medicine. The chapter was founded during the 2015-16 school year by a group of students interested in pursuing medicine.
HOSA’s mission is to empower HOSA-Future Health Professionals to become leaders in the global health community through education, collaboration, and experience. The Concordia chapter holds various educational and service events during the year to promote healthful habits and/or raise money for a health service organization. Each year the chapter sends students to compete at the state leadership conference held in Indianapolis. In addition to their competition at the conference, students are encouraged to attend education symposiums and workshops as well as network with universities and healthcare agencies. Last year, nine Concordia students scored in the top 10 for their event at the state conference. The events included CPR/First Aid, Extemporaneous Writing, Forensic Science and Epidemiology. Five of those students students also qualified for the national leadership held in Orlando, FL. Three students were able to compete at the national conference during the summer. They represented the state of Indiana well.
Cost: All students are eligible to join the chapter after paying the state and national dues totaling $15.
