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

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.


Health Science knowledge and skills will be demonstrated during the National Leadership Conference of HOSA: Future Health Professionals in Orlando, FL, from June 25-28, 2014. Wisconsin will be represented by 127 members and advisors.


Every year Health Science teachers join together for the WI HOPE (Health Occupations Professional Educators) meeting to hear from speakers, receive important information, share best practices, and network with others from our state.  This year’s HOPE Conference will be March 6, 2015.  The HOSA advisor meeting will occur on Thursday evening.  Stay tuned for more details.


The National Health Science Curriculum Conference will be held in Denver, CO, on October 15-17, 2014. For information and registration, please visit the National Consortium for Health Science Education (NCHSE) webpage.
