In the 2017-18 school year, SD HOSA had 29 chapters and over 850 members! Chapters implemented HOSA into their schools’ curriculum as they brought in healthcare professionals, medical students, introduced the competitive events program, and exposed students to a wide-range of healthcare career options.

Chapters decide to meet during school, after school or before school, allowing participation opportunities for all students grades 9-12.

Chapters stay proactive by getting involved in their school and community. Local chapters participate in homecoming activities, raise money for non-profits, volunteer for community service, and even present to middle school and elementary school classrooms.

Chapters elect officers, plan a program of work, participate in three HOSA conferences, recruit new members, attend healthcare related activities such as Scrubs Camp and Health Science Career Camps, and go on tours of healthcare facilities.
