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 have 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 skilful 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.

An ever-increasing number of private hospitals, clinics, diagnostic centres with a no-compromise emphasis on quality of health care and patient satisfaction have led to an extraordinary 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.
