Founded in 1943, the Healthcare at Kellogg (HCAK) program was the first at any business school to focus on healthcare. As Kellogg has evolved since your time on campus, so has HCAK. Over the past five years, we’ve worked to rebuild and reinvigorate our program to match the complex challenges facing leaders in the business of healthcare services, life sciences, medical devices, private equity and entrepreneurship.
The program, now led by Professor Craig Garthwaite, has developed new curricular offerings and a broad set of co-curricular events that better prepare students for their future careers as healthcare leaders. We believe that you, our healthcare alumni, are an important stakeholder and a powerful resource for the Healthcare program and for each other. One of our goals is to facilitate career-long connections - among alumni and between alumni and HCAK - and to strengthen this community. We hope this site and the Healthcare at Kellogg slack workspace, Kellogghealthalum.slack.com, make it easy for you to stay connected with HCAK and engage with each other.
The Kellogg Healthcare Alumni Network site includes a searchable directory available to members, of 4,600 Kellogg alumni working in healthcare, news about upcoming events for alumni, a library of past events with links to recordings and links to career services.
