Professional Development Committee

Drawing up plans and curriculums that will not only allow members to master the necessary technical skills they need to work in healthcare, but also to navigate the recruitment processes of various roles in the space. Organize educational workshops, study groups, and mock interviews to help our members enhance their business acumen and be an active part of the healthcare business community at UC Berkeley. Committee partners have a unique opportunity to learn more about the intersection of healthcare and business by leading various workshops and interacting with upperclassmen already involved in the space.

Corporate Development Committee

We will be hosting educational workshops, networking events, and speaker panels with healthcare business professionals from a variety of fields, including consulting, investment banking, hospital administration, nonprofit/government work, and startups. We will help build HBAB’S corporate network and maintain industry relationships to provide members with industry-specific insights, resources for recruiting, and a better understanding of the general healthcare business landscape. We also hope to work with the career center to host career and internship fairs for members.
We are looking for motivated, persistent students with strong organizational skills.

Mentorship Committee

The Mentorship Committee is responsible for coordinating the Mentorship Program with the Haas Healthcare Association (HHA), as well as organizing an internal big/little system. This committee will thoughtfully match all members and will ensure that these programs run smoothly. The Mentorship committee will also partner HHA for the healthcare business conference this semester. We are looking for enthusiastic students that want to make our programs and collaborations a success!

FINANCE Committee

The Finance Committee is in charge of raising, allocating, and dealing with the organization's finances. We will be reaching out to various companies to identify corporate sponsors for HBAB and create meaningful relationships with these sponsors. We will also be dealing with the ASUC to manage our club finances and working with the Executive team to decide how funds are used. The Finance Committee will also be working to provide sponsorships to HBAB students. 

marketing & technology Committee

The Marketing & Technology Committee is in charge of creating relevant content for our social media accounts as well as blog posts. Additionally, we are in charge of continually working to improve the HBAB website for the best access to members, sponsors and our guest speakers.  We are responsible for managing event and conference advertisement for maximum reach and our main goal is to make HBAB's resources available to as many interested individuals on campus as possible. Committee partners have a unique opportunity to learn more about the intersection of healthcare and business by leading campaigns, being innovative with outreach and gaining industry connections.
