The Healthcare and Biotech Club seeks to educate and inform the Kellogg School community on the developments in all aspects of the life science industries. The club also strives to identify and provide opportunities for students in recruiting and career development.
The club sponsors academic, career, and social activities. Academic events include a bi-monthly industry speaker series, visits to companies (such as Lilly), and the Biotech Business Plan Competition. Career events include alumni panels, company fairs, internship "debriefings", and advice on the independent job search.
In conjunction with the High Tech Club, the students also organize Tech Treks to learn about emerging and established technology centers around the country. Students travel to the area and meet with local business leaders. Destinations for these Treks have included Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Pittsburgh, and Washington, DC.
