Students from Central Tech’s Drumright and Sapulpa campuses earned 17 team and individual awards in the HOSA-Future Health Professionals state competition on April 11 in Norman, OK. Among those 17 awards, four teams and individuals placed first, moving them on to the HOSA national competition later this year.
The three-day competition tested students on many aspects of the medical field, including prepared speaking, medical photography, and CPR/first aid. Students were also able to attend educational symposiums, workshops and other learning-based events.
HOSA is an international student organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Education (HSE) Division of ACTE. HOSA’s two-fold mission is to promote career opportunities in the health care industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. HOSA’s goal is to encourage all health science instructors and students to join and be actively involved in the HSE-HOSA Partnership.

With Central Tech conducting online training for the remainder of the school year, healthcare instructors from both campuses swiftly collected and donated the personal protective equipment (PPE) and other medical supplies originally planned for student instruction.
