Health Science Education

Health Science Education (HSE) prepares students for careers related to medicine, nursing, health science, and allied health programs. Students preparing for health careers or for teaching careers in health occupations can gain valuable career information and network with other professionals by participating in the HSE program. This program provides students technical skills, health care competencies, and opportunities to obtain the knowledge necessary to satisfy the requirements for entry-level health care jobs. HSE is dedicated to educating today's students for tomorrow's health care community. Health Science Image

What's New in Health Science Education

Plan to attend the Spring WI-HOPE Conference to learn about emerging healthcare issues and to receive updates regarding Wisconsin and national health science education initiatives.

Anticipate that the next Health Science Educators Academy will be held on July 24-25, 2018, in Stevens Point. Look for more information to become available. [Last year's Health Science Educators Academy was held on July 25-26, 2017 at Madison College. Additional conference information was available from the Wisconsin HSEA webpage.] 

Health Science knowledge and skills were demonstrated during the State Leadership Conference of HOSA-Future Health Professionals in Wisconsin Dells, April 9-11, 2017. There were a total of 68 chapters and 1,119 participants registered for this year's SLC.  2017-2018 conference dates are available on the Wisconsin HOSA webpage.

Wisconsin Standards for Health Science Education is an on-line resource providing information about course and program planning in Wisconsin.

Health Science Programming in Wisconsin was developed to assist school districts in providing health science classes for students. Options are given for program development and licensed teachers.
