Why Choose OT Partners With HOSA to Empower the Next Generation!

We are excited to announce that Why Choose OT has partnered with HOSA – Future Health Professionals, Inc., the leading student organization for aspiring health care professionals, to provide valuable insights and resources for their members to explore the exciting world of occupational therapy.

“We're thrilled to partner with HOSA to open students' eyes to the vast possibilities within occupational therapy,” says Angela Macauley, SVP of Marketing & Communications of NBCOT. “This partnership aligns perfectly with our mission to equip future health care professionals with the knowledge and resources they need to make informed career choices.”

Through this exciting partnership, HOSA’s 280,000+ members from middle school through college, will gain access to a range of valuable resources from Why Choose OT:

Future OT Competition: HOSA’s Competitive Events Program hosts over 90 events for students across the U.S. We are finally adding OT to the list of health professions events. Creating and releasing an event will take time, but our goal is to have an event at the 2025 HOSA International Leadership Conference.

Elevating Awareness: Why Choose OT will be a prominent presence at HOSA's International Leadership Conference, which reaches over 13,000 students. We will be exhibiting and offering educational workshops to ignite interest in OT careers.

Scholarship Support: We are committed to financially supporting future OTs and OTAs. Why Choose OT will award five (5) $1,000 scholarships to deserving HOSA members pursuing occupational therapy degrees.

Nationwide Reach: HOSA's 5,400 chapters across the U.S. will display a captivating classroom poster about occupational therapy, piquing student curiosity on a national scale.

Ongoing Education: Why Choose OT will collaborate with HOSA to offer engaging opportunities. This includes webinars, email communication with HOSA members, and informative content on HOSA's on-demand learning platform.

We believe this partnership will be instrumental in inspiring the next generation of occupational therapy professionals. We look forward to collaborating with HOSA to make a lasting impact on the health care field.
