Final Awards Ceremony Winners

Delaware HOSA and Newark Charter School partnered to attend the AMSUS Conference at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at the National Harbor on Tuesday, November 28, 2017. HOSA members learned about opportunities in military medicine and scholarships from high-ranking officials including VADM, Dr. Michael Cowen, Executive Director of AMSUS, RADM, Dr. Colin Chinn, Joint Staff Surgeon at the Pentagon, and Dr. Jerome Adams, U.S. Surgeon General. Dr. Adams’ motto is “Better health through better partnerships”. He is committed to helping HOSA build a stronger pipeline of future health professionals!   

The Association of Military Surgeons of the United States (AMSUS) was established in 1891. The constituent services of the Association include the Medical Departments of the Department of Defense, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Homeland Security. It is the “Society of Federal Health Professionals”, and as such contributes to the improvement of all phases of the federal health services.

In addition to learning about military medicine, HOSA members had an opportunity to collaborate with federal health professionals from across the country in the exhibit hall, which included viewing and operating Da Vinci robotic surgery system!

Thank you AMSUS and HOSA for an opportunity to learn about our future as health professionals!

The University of Delaware College of Health Sciences hosted more than 800 Delaware high school students at the HOSA Future Health Professionals State Leadership Conference. The week included competitive events, workshops and tours of the incredible STAR Health Sciences Complex.
