What We Do
A quick look into our projects and events
Gone are the days of healthcare being synonymous with traditional clinical environments and rigid insurance systems. Now, more than ever, we are seeing the expansion of healthcare innovations like new policies, technologies, and systems dedicated to improving healthcare delivery and equity. Entrepreneurship in healthcare today incorporates this new definition of innovation, and ViTAL is at the forefront of these new opportunities. ViTAL empowers students to cultivate their vision within healthcare innovation and entrepreneurship, and gain the expertise they need to join this exciting industry.
