With junior recruiting spinning up and with group selection for my BB SA internship starting soon, I wanted to ask about what analysts in healthcare groups do and if any of you have moral questions about the role you play? I'm super interested in HC and have read a number of books on the history of the medical-industrial complex in the USA, and personally I slightly disturbing how the incentives of doctors, insurers and pharmaceutical companies affect Americans with high and rising prices for drugs and insurance, poorer quality and less cost-effective care, etc.
Should I avoid hc groups for this reason? Are transactions ever justified on bases that are likely hurtful to the population, or are they justified on the usual bases of general cost-savings/synergies? Where else should I look to learn more about hc banking in particular? Do you think your work benefits society in the same way that work in other groups does?
I would really appreciate any insights, because depending on the details of the job I can see myself gunning for Healthcare as my top choice (as I would love to work in Healthcare VC in the future). Thanks!
