  • Advanced management programme in health care deals with the different facilities to be provided to the patients during the course of treatment. Of course, the practicing doctors or the specialists employed in the Multispeciality hospitals are aware of the advanced facilities to be extended to the patients but a better programming offered by MBA can upgrade their skill since the programme has been designed to enrich the knowledge of the the specialists with the wide coverage of medicines and surgeries for quick redressal of the disorders. Nuclear medicines or latest research in Oncology may help the patients substantially in improving the health.
    The lectures delivered by the experienced faculties would prove to be boon for the practicing doctors. With such an exposure, you will have abundant satisfaction in serving the patients apart from your your better avenues for promotion.

  • Health care management program is one of the best MBA program for doctors as it opens an entirely a new career path for them. They can apply for managerial positions in big medical institutes or hospitals or research institutions after acquiring this qualification.

    Generally, after MBBS & MD or MMBS & MS a doctor will be confined to clinical or operative surgery field in the hospitals but a MBA in Health Care Managements degree gives him an opportunity to seek higher positions in administrative and managerial sides in the medical industry as he gets knowledge of allied fields also.

    The course of Health care management covers many things like understanding of health services system, knowing about managed care and market structure, financial decisions in health care industry, management and strategy of medical devices, health care for elderly, importance of data and analytics, managing health care organisations and understanding the management, economic and policy issues facing the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

    The syllabus of this MBA course is quite exhaustive and is sufficient to prepare a doctor to take up more challenging positions in the medical industry.

    I will suggest you to go through the syllabus of the course in ISB, Hyderabad before deciding to go for it.

    You can check some other colleges for the same course which are -

    1. Galgotias University, Noida, UP.
    2. Global Business School and Research Centre, Pune, Maharashtra.
    3. Indian Institute of Health Management Research, Jaipur, Rajasthan,
    4. NIMS University, Jaipur, Rajasthan.

    Knowledge is power.

  • The Advanced Management Program in Health Management is being offered by many colleges and business schools. The program will give a chance to professionals to have intense interaction with top-tier colleagues and faculty members. The key issues affecting healthcare innovation and delivery will be well understood and what is going around in the world will also be known. The participants may gain new management insights, stronger decision-making and implementation skills. This course will take your thinking to the higher levels and you will understand the broader global perspective.
    The PG courses like MS and MD are purely related to the subject matter and good for the people who wanted to continue and remain in the technical field only. But this course is good for the people who are interested go into the administrative and governance fields of health care. There are chances to get the managerial posts in the field of health science.
    It all depends on the individuals' interest and there are good chances for the candidate with course in the administrative field of health sciences.
