Healthcare Sector of India has overcome many challenges due to its tremendous development in the sector with some very positive responses. The major changes include development of new delivery models, innovative business practices and investments in niche areas. Major highlight of the consequence of aforesaid development is the rising graph of professionalization of the sector which is thus creating a huge demand for management professionals.
Indian School of Business, Chandigarh, a privately run business school is all set to launch one-of-its-kind Healthcare Management Program (HMP) in the campus located in Mohali and Hyderabad. The program is being launched with an aim to groom doctors and healthcare professionals to deliver excellence in healthcare management and to enable them to move into leadership positions in the near future, apart from driving the sector’s growth.
Analjit Singh, founder of Max India Group and founder supporter of Mohali campus of ISB said in a press statement, “There is a serious paucity of well-trained quality healthcare management professionals in India. The impressive increase in investment and capacity of the private healthcare industry in India in the last few years, accentuates this shortage. Further, as we deal with lives and care of our patients, the finesse required in management deserves specialized training. Management, Science and Art have to all come together.”
While addressing the gathering at the inauguration ceremony, Ajit Rangnekar, dean of ISB, said, “Consistent with our vision of grooming future leaders for India and the world, ISB’s Healthcare Management Program will address this need by creating future leaders and visionaries in the healthcare sector.”
The newly launched Healthcare Management Program has been designed and developed by Max Institute of Healthcare Management in association with the Centre for Executive Education at ISB. The duration of part-time program which is expected to start in January 2016 is one year.
Earlier on October 30, Indian School of Business Hyderabad and Ashoka University planned to create a venture accelerator programme in collaboration for early-stage startups with an investment of up to Rs 1 crore.
