Tony Roshan, a biomedical engineering senior, is a finalist in the Texas Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) Healthcare Issues Exam, held during the state conference last month. He will be competing at the national level in Nashville, Tenn. at the end of June.

The competition comprised an exam and essay response. In preparation for the exam, Roshan studied medical developments for the year 2012-2013, including changes to pharmaceutical research, ethical policies governing medical care, and the American public’s perception and opinion of modern-day medicine. He was selected as one of the high-scoring collegiate students in Texas.

After graduation, Roshan plans to pursue graduate studies in human physiology and professional studies in medicine.
