About Us

Healthcare is not just for doctors and scientists. It's for business leaders. HLA understands this and will support its members in every way possible as we enter and transform the industry together.

The Healthcare Leadership Association (HLA) is an industry-specific club that focuses on all sectors of the healthcare industry, including payer, provider, digital health, and life sciences (pharmaceuticals, biotech, and medical devices). It also identifies MBA opportunities within the industry — marketing, finance, consulting, strategy, operations, and general management.

The Healthcare Leadership Association aims to position USC Marshall as the premier business school for healthcare professionals and prepare our members for any opportunity within healthcare.

President's Message

Shefali Agarwal

President, Healthcare Leadership Association

For more than 5 years, HLA has dedicated itself to the pursuit of excellence in all healthcare sectors, earning its position as a leading industry-specific club at Marshall. What I hold most dear is our shared sense of community, which is an integral part of both the learning experience and the relationships that have helped shape each member's future.

As president, I want to lead our members to achieve their goals by fostering a connection with their desired companies, providing them the resources necessary to succeed, and furthering their journey into becoming the next generation of healthcare leaders. It is our integrated mission to nurture a foundation for students in the Marshall community to learn about the healthcare industry, connect with senior HLA members, and network with alumni and recruiters. There is a great unmet need for talented business professionals to solve the complex issues in the healthcare space, and our goal is to prepare you for your leadership success story.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Fight On!
