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.
