Young Excellence in Healthcare is an interdisciplinary network bringing together inspiring young high-potentials of various sectors within healthcare.

Our meetings spark new ideas we exchange on both informally and formally and, of course, they are a superb platform for instigating new and tying closer personal relationships. We consider ourselves as the upcoming decision-makers in healthcare markets.
