COMpetition 101


Competition is a great way for members to bolster their knowledge of the medical field and fulfill their passions for particular subjects/skills. Competitions also enable members to network and build connections with HOSA members from chapters all over the area, state, and nation and thus grow closer to the members within our own chapter. Additionally, competition is a great addition to one's college resume and scholarships are even available to the winners of certain competitions/recognition events.
