The MIT Sloan Healthcare Club (formerly known as the Biomedical Business Club, or BBC) is a resource for students from across MIT who are interested in the healthcare and life sciences industry. Our mission is threefold:
- Enable current members to obtain internships and jobs in the healthcare and life sciences industry through various club-sponsored activities, including networking events and interview preparation.
- Host an innovative, exciting, and relevant healthcare conference that leverages MIT’s unique cutting edge research, Boston’s biotech foundations, and leading area teaching hospitals to serve as a beacon for those in industry and academia.
- Promote the development of future healthcare leaders while creating a fun and supportive community.
