Healthcare Club Leadership Board

Our History and Mission

The University of Virginia Darden School of Business Healthcare Club (HCC) was established in the Fall of 2015 with the mission of bringing together all members of the wide-reaching Darden Community who are passionate about the healthcare industry. Since its inception, the Healthcare Club has been devoted to building the healthcare community at Darden through educational programming, community engagement, and career support.

The Healthcare Club firmly believes in creating space where current and future leaders can discuss critical issues, collaborate to solve pressing problems, and find career opportunities that enable them to drive positive change in the world's healthcare systems.

Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization's contracts, acts or omissions.
