Organized by the Association, the speaker series course is 6‐weeks long and features nationally recognized speakers examining trends in Biotech, Pharma, Digital Health, Providers, Payers, Public and Global Health. Each two-hour session typically consists of 2-3 speakers with 30- to 60-minute timeslots and a concluding 30-minute panel discussion with the audience.

Abstract of Course Contents and Objectives:

The course aims to help students interested in healthcare learn about current key topics in different parts of the ever-changing healthcare industry. Students will also have a chance to know how to get involved in healthcare-related opportunities across the Berkeley campus.  Guest speakers at innovative companies will share their experiences and insights with class participants through presentations and/or panel discussions. The presentations and discussions will include both overview of the industry as well as a deep-dive in to key topics.
