HOSA is an international student organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Education (HSE) Division of ACTE. HOSA’s mission is to promote career opportunities in the health care industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people.

            The HSE-HOSA partnership recognizes the importance of providing students with training far beyond the basic technical skills needed for entry into the health care field. The rapidly changing health care system needs dedicated workers who, in addition to their technical skills, are people-oriented and capable of playing a leadership or followership role as a member of a health care team.

            For more information about full-time programs, short-term classes, and Business and Industry Services, at Mid-America Technology Center, please visit us at www.matech.edu.

Congratulations to HOSA International Leadership Conference contest winners Joseph Stroud, Lindsay; Elizabeth Dunn, Paoli; Crystal Cunha, Lexington; and Maggie Thompson, Elmore City.
