Welcome to the website for the Wharton Undergraduate Healthcare Club, one of Penn's premier healthcare clubs with over 400 members and 40+ events per year.

WUHC was founded in recognition of the growing interdependence between emerging healthcare and business management. As a board, we seek to create 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.

I am honored to have the opportunity to serve our members with such a dynamic and talented board. WUHC has played an invaluable role in my Penn experience, providing me with career guidance, support, and lifelong friendships. We hope to provide members with the same unforgettable experience that we have had with WUHC.
