National Geographic Learning - Academic Testing Center

HOSA is pleased to announce that National Geographic Learning is again partnering with HOSA-Future Health Professionals to host the Academic Testing Center at the 2020 International Leadership Conference. The Academic Testing Center will provide HOSA delegates the opportunity to demonstrate their basic knowledge in preparation to become future health professionals. 

Who can participate:
  • Secondary Division Members
  • Postsecondary/Collegiate Division Members
  • Alumni Members

 

Academic Testing Center Goal:

The ILC goal is to provide as many delegates as space permits with the opportunity to participate in a test in the Academic Testing Center.
 
Eligibility:
 
All delegates in the Secondary, Postsecondary/Collegiate and Alumni Divisions will be eligible to take up to two of the Academic Testing Center tests. You can still compete in one traditional Competitive Event and as many Recognition events as you qualify for.
 
Process: 
 
Delegates will pre-register for the Academic Testing Center and indicate one or two preferred choices for testing. This registration process will happen in the HOSA Conference Management System when you register for the 2020 International Leadership Conference. Delegates will receive an Academic Test Schedule prior to the ILC. 
 
The Academic Testing Center will provide a testing environment for 300 HOSA members each session for a 60-minute period. Seating and test time will be assigned and will not conflict with other Competitive Events, Leadership Universities or Voting Delegate responsibilities.
