MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology) has a reputation as one of the world’s top universities, and the MIT Sloan Healthcare Club is their student-run organisation focused on advancing healthcare. The club brings together students from all disciplines and backgrounds, pairing them with the established healthcare community around MIT to develop the next generation of healthcare leaders.
Students are able to engage in events like the Bioinnovations Conference, where academic, policy and industry leaders gather to discuss the latest developments in healthcare; the Sloan Case Competition, challenging business schools to design solutions to healthcare problems; and Healthcare Treks overseas to gain a global perspective on healthcare needs.
It’s run by Masters students from a number of different areas across the healthcare industry, including sales, investment, consulting, research, and IT. Graduates of Healthcare at Sloan can find themselves working in areas like Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals, Healthcare Management, Health IT, Medical Devices, Healthcare Consulting, Healthcare Investment Banking, Venture Capital and Private Equity, and Healthcare Entrepreneurship.
