Based in Southlake, Texas, Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) is an important resource for future health care professionals, and students with an interest in the health sciences. Participants receive information pertaining to many aspects of the health care field, such as delivering compassionate care.

HOSA offers memberships to secondary school and college students, as well as mentor opportunities for medical practitioners and alumni.
Health Occupation Students of America possesses a national reach. In August 2013, it participated in the year's second Federal Interagency Roundtable in Arlington, Virginia. Titled “Moving Forward the National Strategic Imperative for Health: Aligning Incentives for Cultural Transformation,” this interdisciplinary program discussed ways of encouraging people to lead healthier lives through economics, behavioral incentives, and other approaches.
