About the Course

Among the top professions, Health Management occupies an eminent place. Increasing awareness in all traditional sectors associated with providing healthcare: government, private sector and trusts has resulted in a constant effort to improve healthcare delivery in their respective domain. More so, as healthcare management is becoming increasingly a domain of the private sector, there is a growing need for skillful doctors, nurses and Para-medics and, indeed, efficient hospital managers and administrators.

The medical doctors and nurses have been known for their empathy towards hospitals but the growing emergence of healthcare as a profession has drawn even those who did not have a fascination for hospitals and healthcare activities. Hospitals and healthcare providers wholeheartedly opened their doors to non-medicos who had an eye for detail and a flair for pursuing a career in Hospital Management.

Ever increasing number of private hospitals, clinics, diagnostic centers with a no-compromise emphasis on quality of health care and patient satisfaction have led to an extra ordinary need for personnel with a professional qualification in Hospital Management. Both medical and non-medical persons can opt for the course leading to Advanced Diploma in Hospital Management.

Career Prospects

Increasingly, graduates in Allopathic, Ayurvedic, Homeopathic medicine, Physiotherapy, Dentistry, and Pharmacy have been opting to study for a post –graduate degree / diploma in Hospital Management. There have been instances of graduates in physical / life sciences and engineering / technology taking up the course to enhance their employability or to supplement their knowledge base in hospital / healthcare administration.

On successful completion of the course in hospital management, they have taken up careers as managers in areas such as quality, operations and HR in hospitals, clinics, diagnostic centers and some opted for careers in healthcare verticals of IT companies or healthcare consultancies.
