The HOSA Competitive Events Program staff is working hard to prepare for 3363 competitors in 48 competitive events. In their business meeting, a new event was approved to be piloted in 2002-03. The new event - Clinical Specialty - is a skill development event specifically for health and medical careers that are not served through existing HOSA events. The Clinical Specialty event will include career research, skill development, and work-based learning components.

In other Competitive Events news, HOSA members will want to look for significant changes in the HOSA National Recognition Program. New event guidelines will be available on this web site in September.
