The Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Management Program's (HPM) students are not only intellectually gifted but also passionate about making a difference. They are eager to tackle the myriad issues and challenges facing the healthcare industry.
Some CBS students come to HPM having spent several years working in healthcare consulting, health IT, banking, biopharma, health systems or other sectors and wish to enhance their knowledge before returning. Other students use their time at CBS to explore various healthcare opportunities to determine whether there's a fit.
Wherever you are on the journey, you'll find support from HPM leadership and kindred spirits by connecting with the student-led Healthcare Industry Association (HCIA). HPM works closely with HCIA to bring thought leaders, senior executives and entrepreneurs to campus to discuss their careers and provide current perspectives. The two groups also collaborate on the Annual Columbia Business School Healthcare Conference in February.
