Healthcare Leadership and Development (HLD)


The Healthcare Leadership and Development (HLD) interest group aims to provide medical students a basis in business acumen and leadership skills necessary to be successful in the business and administrative sides of medicine. Our goals are to inspire entrepreneurship, provide medical students a better understanding of decisions driven through business strategy and how to be to be physician leaders in the community. We believe it is essential to be informed about the decisions we will make as future physicians that fall outside the realm of patient care.
