A NEW event has been added for VILC 2021! The Family Medicine Career Test sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians will be available for the 2021 VILC competitors as a part of the Academic Testing Center. There’s a lot to learn about family medicine. It’s the only specialty where a physician is trained to care for patients from birth to end of life. To help high school students studying for the HOSA Family Medicine Career Test ace their exam, in collaboration with HOSA, the AAFP has collected videos and articles that cover the basics of medicine’s most unbound specialty.
About the Academic Testing Center
The goal of the Academic Testing Center is to provide as many International Leadership Conference HOSA delegates as space permits with the opportunity to demonstrate their basic knowledge in preparation to become future health professionals. The series of events in the Academic Testing Center are written tests based on items from the identified text specific to each event. Competitors will recognize, identify, define, interpret and apply knowledge in a 50-item multiple-choice test with a tie-breaker question. The written test will measure knowledge and understanding at the recall, application, and analysis levels. Higher-order thinking skills will be incorporated.
