The Bay Area is home to many provider organizations (hospitals, clinics), health plans, policy initiatives, and related healthcare services. The nature of healthcare in California is extremely innovative with many new products being launched to meet emerging insurance and care needs. With GPHM's historical roots in hospital administration, the program has deep and well-respected relationships with many such organizations. As a result, GPHM students have numerous and unique opportunities. Students can also leverage the numerous alumni from the Haas School and other UC Berkeley programs who have gone on to continue their careers with national healthcare organizations. Alumni are often eager to help our students by giving them contacts to conduct informational interviews, providing job leads and career coaching.
