Founded in 2008, WUHC has grown to become the University of Pennsylvania's premier healthcare organization, serving members from all 4 undergraduate schools.
We recognize the growing interdependence between emerging healthcare and business management. As such, the Wharton Undergraduate Healthcare Club seeks to educate its members on all aspects of healthcare business, science, and policy. We believe in creating a space where future leaders with common interests can learn how to discuss important issues, solve problems with creativity and collaboration, and find career opportunities that will enable them to lead positive change in the healthcare system.
