Healthcare students from the four Great Oaks campuses and four Great Oaks satellite programs located at area schools showed their skills and knowledge in regional HOSA – Future Healthcare Professionals competition in February.
The Great Oaks students came from a variety of healthcare majors, including dental assisting, exercise science, health technology, secondary practical nursing and surgical technology, as well as the biomedical sciences satellite programs at area schools.
The competition events were either individual or team activities. They typically included a 50-100 question test of specific knowledge. Some events required students to demonstrate their healthcare knowledge and skills in a mock scenario.
