The Healthcare Industry Association (HCIA) is a student-led group dedicated to supporting Columbia Business School students with career interests in all segments of the healthcare industry, including positions that invest in and advise the sector. Through our diverse events and deep resources we seek to:

  • Enrich students’ understanding of the rapidly changing healthcare environment through facilitating presentations by industry leaders and augmenting the healthcare curriculum at Columbia Business School
  • Identify employment opportunities (full-time and internships) and prepare students for success in the recruiting process through both formal (e.g., on-campus recruiting) and informal (e.g., club-organized networking opportunities with industry professionals) mechanisms
  • Continue to strengthen a community of future healthcare business leaders through current student and alumni interaction
