Healthcare Club

The Healthcare Club will bring inspiration, share experiences and new insights to every healthcare professional connected with Vlerick. It is dedicated to promoting awareness of issues, trends and opportunities in healthcare-related fields, and help address its most pressing problems. Our activities are aimed at engaging a vibrant alumni community of healthcare-minded peers.

The Club's objectives are to create inspiring educational and networking opportunities for its members, and to promote Vlerick Business School as a hub for healthcare.

Overview of the type of events we organise:

  • Vlerick’s yearly Healthcare Conference 
  • Panel discussions with industry professionals 
  • Invited talks from leading figures in the industry 
  • Visits to biotech, pharmaceutical, medical and digital health companies 
  • Networking breakfasts, lunches and dinners 
  • Webinars


The Vlerick Healthcare Club will expand your perspectives in healthcare. The Healthcare Club represents all fields of the healthcare landscape including biotech, pharma, MedTech, digital health technology, healthcare providers, insurers and more.

  • We offer a safe space / sounding board to discuss personal/sector challenges.
  • We challenge in a highly structured & moderated way 
  • We require an open mind, honesty and respect 
  • We create focus & accountability on what truly matters 
  • We keep members energised by surrounding them with their biggest fans.


The Healthcare Club brings together Vlerick alumni who are professionally active within the sector, who wish to pursue a career in or return to the healthcare industry, and students who simply want to learn more about this interesting and fast-growing sector.

“I want to say that I felt an amazing afterglow today. Helping to organise the Healthcare Conference was such a satisfying experience! I’ve been blown away by the cooperation and achievement of the entire group, and I feel that we connected as a team – which is an achievement on its own, keeping in mind that a lot of us only met online! Thank you all for that! Hopefully, we’ll see each other again soon!”
