The Prospective Health Care Club is an undergraduate organization at Duke University that was founded in November 2005. This is the first such undergraduate health care club in the nation. We are a group of individuals from diverse backgrounds with varied interests-- many of us are on the premedical path; some of us approach medicine from a scientific viewpoint; some of us approach medicine from a public policy or an economic perspective. The common thread that binds us as a group is that we believe optimal health and health care cannot be achieved with the traditional acute care and symptomatic treatment philosophy. We believe that a radical change in the field of medicine is not only the most promising road for health care, but is necessary if we wish to address the health of all peoples.
