HOSA Western’s mission is to give individuals who have a passion for health science a place to connect with like-minded people and develop their passion by providing them with an environment that tests their skills in healthcare. HOSA Western aims to help students become more open to different careers related to health sciences. There are hundreds of possibilities for a career in healthcare or medicine, yet sadly many of these options are not even considered by students. HOSA Western hopes to create a safe place for all science students to engage their interests. The club will hold weekly workshops where club members will be guided through various healthcare-related skills and topics by students who are not professionals but have previous experience with the HOSA competition. They have experience preparing for the Spring Leadership Conference (National Competition) and the International Leadership Conference (International Competition).
