The initiation of this group was born from the fact that there are a significant number and diverse array of University of Chicago alumni that serve the life-science and healthcare industries, and that there was a need for a group to bring these individuals together to network, collaborate and share ideas. The overall mission of the group is to:
- Serve alumni in the healthcare, hospital, insurance industry and in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical device industry.
- Reconnect alumni through social networking, speaker events and workshop.
- Share novel ideas, career development opportunities and build awareness of challenges and issues facing industries.
- Include alumni and industry talent in the fields of business, law, medicine and public policy.
Given this mission, programming will be topic-oriented and focused on professional subject matters pertinent to the University of Chicago Healthcare & BioPharma (HCBP) industries; will encompass the views and perspectives of the relevant disciplines; and will take the form of faculty, alumni and industry presentations, panel discussions, and interactive mixers.
The HCBP Alumni Group offers diverse programming to serve a broad membership base. The HCBP alumni members come from across the University serving in the healthcare and life-science industries with an interest in business, legal, public policy, and medical issues.
The group holds:
Monthly informal discussion and networking meetings on the second Thursday of most months.At least four educational/networking programs per year featuring expert speakers. Most programs are held at the Gleacher Center. Some are held in the northern suburbs.
