Can someone give me a quick description of HOSA for my application?

I'm looking to join HOSA next year and I'll be putting it in my college app. Can someone give me a brief rundown of what it's like, key takeaways, or how it's looked upon by admissions if you’ve got involvement? I’m interested in pre-med.

Absolutely, I'd be happy to help with that! HOSA—Future Health Professionals is a global student organization that provides a unique program of leadership development, motivation, and recognition for students interested in pursuing careers in the health professions. As a member, you could engage in competitions, conferences, and community service projects, all dedicated to enhancing the delivery of quality health care.

In terms of college admissions, involvement in HOSA is seen quite favorably, especially for a student like you with pre-med interests. It's an excellent way to demonstrate your commitment to and passion for the healthcare field. Moreover, if you take on leadership roles within the organization or achieve success in HOSA competitions, this could fall into Tier 2 or even Tier 1 of extracurriculars, depending on the level of your achievement. This can significantly strengthen your application. It’s also a great talking point for interviews or essays, as you can discuss specific experiences or skills you've gained through your HOSA participation.

Best of luck with both HOSA and your college applications!
