What does a PhD in Neuroscience have that I don't? Wait, I think I just answered my question.

Really though, there were some really impressive students and some that were relatively average (in terms of top MBA students). When looking at that resume book, you have to take out the summer internship and then look at the rest of the company names. At first when I scrolled through, I just looked at the top name in the list and promptly put Wharton in the "shot at rejection not worth my $200 application fee" pile. After looking through it again, there are some run of the mill resumes. _________________ "Egotism is the anesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity." - Frank Leahy GMAT Club Premium Membership - big benefits and savings SVP Joined: 04 Dec 2007 Posts: 1689 Schools: Kellogg '11 Followers: 14 Kudos [?]: 187 [0], given: 31 Re: Wharton Healthcare Management Program [#permalink] 05 Jul 2008, 07:56 terry12 wrote: Yeah, you gotta google "wharton hcm;" googling "wharton health care management" etc. won't bring up the right link. http://hc.wharton.upenn.edu/programs_mba_students.htm Click on the little HCMG Resume Book logo on the right of the page to download the pdf. thanks Terry!! that's really helpful SVP Joined: 04 Dec 2007 Posts: 1689 Schools: Kellogg '11 Followers: 14 Kudos [?]: 187 [0], given: 31 Re: Wharton Healthcare Management Program [#permalink] 05 Jul 2008, 08:08 highhopes wrote: Thanks for the link.

Oh boy. Some of these folks have outstanding degree credentials - PhDs, MDs, etc. There are a few "more normal" resumes but there's an equal number with high-brand companies listed...I think I need to do a bit more research to figure out if this program is right for me or if I'll shoot myself in the foot by thinking I'm even in the running.

Haha, now I wonder. One of the reasons why I applied to the Wharton HCM was because I thought I could leverage my career background in the pharma industry and boost my acceptance chances. From this thread I get an impression that it was the stupidest move, should have applied to normal MBA and would have been fine Not that I am not fine now

In reading the resume book a bit more closely, I have fewer doubts than I did a few day back. I think that my background in health IT is pretty unique - after all, all the HCM folks can't be from pharma/banking companies. Plus, I think that given my background has a consistent healthcare-field trend (even going back to early college internships), I'd be doing myself more harm and coming off inconsistent if I don't apply to HCM at Wharton and just apply to Wharton "regular".

Let's face it, getting into Wharton is a long shot anyways - if I can make a strong case for why HCM is a good fit for me (and vice-versa), it can't make my chances any worse!

Cheerios,
ac.

Haha this was clearly my doing. Oops.

Isa, if you happen to be still around, it looks like you ended up choosing Kellogg. Care to comment on their HEMA program?

Hmm I dont think he is. But, nice find anyhow

Although my opinion would not be as insightful as someone who is in Kellogg, I'd say HEMA is pretty good. I did some research for my applications (talked to faculty, students etc.) and I think, Kellogg's HEMA is right up there in the top-5 healthcare programs - academically, plenty of options and pretty good recruitment opportunities as well.

Would you care to comment on what the top-5 healthcare programs are? Thanks!

That's a tough one. Also, it really depends on what your background is and what you want to do. A list of best schools for healthcare entrepreneurship would look different, for going into PE/VC industry would be different and so forth.

In particular, Wharton, Duke, Haas, Kellogg, HBS and Stanford all have great healthcare concentrations, dual degree or certificate programs. MIT Sloan has launched a healthcare certificate program this year as well. Tuck had its first two graduates this year from their dual degree program. Yale has an executive program in healthcare. Among the lower ranked schools, I would look at UNC and the likes.

Wharton Healthcare Management Program [#permalink]  12 Feb 2015, 07:55
From my research, I've found top healthcare programs to include Wharton, Duke, Columbia and Kellogg.

I'm not familiar with Stanford's healthcare program. Does anyone have experience with this?
