Future Health Professionals
HOSA exists to enhance the delivery of compassionate, quality health care by providing opportunities for knowledge, skill and leadership development of high school, post-secondary and middle school students interested in healthcare.
What is the cost?
Michigan HOSA places a strong emphasis on leadership development and career exploration in the fall.
Starting in November, Michigan HOSA kicks off the competitive event season with Regional Leadership Conferences. The State Leadership Conference will take place in March followed by the International Leadership Conference in June.
Please pay close attention to conference deadlines. Registering on time allows our staff to plan and order material accordingly.
We set Regional Leadership Conference Deadlines three weeks before the conference date and the State Leadership Conference registration deadline is February 15.
