IIM Bangalore Launches 12 Month New Programme To Train Healthcare Professionals Administration Management

The Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, (IIM-B), launched its Professional Certificate programme in Hospital Management on Wednesday. The 12-month course aims to benefit healthcare professionals, mid-level managers, healthcare consultants, entrepreneurs, business leaders and others, news agency PTI reported.

Karnataka Health Minister K Sudhakar, called the course a “dream come true” and said that the new course would make the health delivery system holistic in both private and government hospitals in a statement issued by his office. 

“From the time I became the Health Minister, there used to be one permanent agenda on each review meeting with the department – how to train our doctors in administration and management. This is because good or bad management will be the difference between life or death in the medical profession,” he said in the statement according to PTI.

The online course is a combination of massive open online courses (MOOCs) by IIM-B faculty, and live online sessions by industry experts and professionals, the institute said in a statement on Wednesday. It will include public health, operations, finance, economics, marketing, organisational behaviour and human resources management, strategy, legal and regulatory framework, statistics and innovation.

The programme includes 10 courses comprising five to six modules. There will be a series of online classes, lectures, workshops, hands-on projects, talks by industry experts, webinars, and more. At the end of the programme, learners will have to present a capstone project, which would combine learnings from all the individual courses.

The minister in his statement said he wanted officials at the administrative level such as District Health Officers, Medical College Deans, District Surgeons, State Programme Officers and Joint Directors to be trained in management so people will get better quality healthcare.

Most hospital authorities, he added, are experts in their fields but they do not know the principles of management, which reduces the efficiency of functioning and not optimally utilising the resources.
