Join the Health Industry Alumni Association
Founded in 1999 by HBS alumni, the Association helps strengthen the alumni healthcare network around the world. Alumni connect, interact, and exchange ideas in order to advance their professional development and ongoing learning.
The annual HBS Health Industry Alumni Association Conference convenes seminal leaders in a collegial forum. This three-day event—held exclusively for the HBS community—attracts nearly 300 attendees.
To learn more about the Association and its annual conference, visit www.hbshealth.org.
Companies benefit from hiring our graduates because they are not only prepared to be leaders at any level, but also are comfortable in the team-based learning environment that mirrors today's business world. Our students are equipped with the tools to tackle critical business challenges—and have the insights and experience to succeed in the complex healthcare industry.

Volunteer to be a Mentor
Alumni working in healthcare are needed to be mentors in our Healthcare Student-Alumni Mentor Program. Through this important program, you can give back to HBS and share your expertise with students as they navigate the healthcare industry and make important life decisions. We continue to hear how rewarding the program is for alumni and students alike. Being a mentor requires only a small amount of your time—but makes a big difference in a student's life.
To participate, contact Tracy Saxton, Healthcare Initiative Coordinator.
