"A Degree in Medicine is not necessary to Enter the Healthcare Sector" - Dr. Ashok K Agarwal #healthcare #mba #career

The healthcare industry is one of the fastest and largest service sectors in the country. In the coming two years it is expected that the Indian healthcare market will touch USD 150billion. There are various factors that will contribute to the growing healthcare market. The rising incomes, changing demographics, growing lifestyle diseases will call upon the demand for better healthcare delivery in the coming future.

As pressure mounts on delivering high quality and high-tech healthcare services, the demand for professional health managers is rising tremendously. According to Bureau of Labour Statistics, employment in the field of health management is expected to grow by 22 percent in the next five years. The growing need of professionalism would only increase the importance of health management courses in the country. These professionals are expected to be specialist at their work and most important, they are expected to have multi-tasking skills. Health management aims to focus on hospital management, community health, health systems research, public health legislations, urban health, health policy formulation and implementation, financing of health services, management of national health programmes, medical tourism, health insurance, healthcare information technology and so on.
There are many universities which offer courses in health management programmes. What makes this field most attractive is the fact that it is not necessary for the students to have a science or medicine background to enter the healthcare sector as managers. The term, medical and health services manager applies to those professionals, who plan, direct, coordinate and supervise the delivery of healthcare. There is a growing trend among the institutions which prefer to employ management graduates for these roles, as involving MBBS/MD doctors in management roles which is being recognised not only as a waste of a good clinicians skills but also increases adhocism as most qualified doctors learn managerial skills through hit and trial method.

Aspirants for health management courses must study the programme from recognised institutions in order to get jobs in reputed organisations. For instance, IIHMR/Delhi, one of the leading institutes offers a two year AICTE approved Postgraduate Diploma in hospital and health management. Any graduate with minimum 50 percent aggregate marks in graduation from any stream from a recognised university with CAT, MAT, CMAT and similar management exams scores can apply. Aspirant with minimum two years of work experience in healthcare and or allied sector are exempted from the management exam scores.

The courses equip students with the right knowledge and skills required for management of healthcare organisations like hospitals, National Health Mission (NHM), health IT, research, public healthcare establishments, NGOs, pharmaceuticals and others. The students at IIHMR have to undergo two months summer training at the end of the first year and in the second year the students have to undergo a three month posting dissertation and work on a problem in real life situation while working for an organisation. Therefore, out of the two years as many as five months are devoted to training and practical work and that is what makes the students completely job ready.
IIHMR Delhi provides excellent placement opportunities in leading hospitals, NHMs, Health IT organizations and many more. The starting package is in the range of INR 5-9 Lakhs per year. In fact, no student has been left out for appropriate placement during last five years.
