Why India Needs More Professionals In Healthcare Management?

Healthcare is already set to be the next sunrise industry, with huge opportunities and scope for exponential growth, much like the IT industry in the early 1990 onwards. And unlike any other industry, healthcare remains and will remain permanent and of national and global significance.
As per the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), hospitals and diagnostic services attracted foreign direct investment (FDI) worth almost US$ 2,500 million between April 2000 and September 2014 and the estimated market value of healthcare in 2020 will be at US$ 280 billion.

The rapid growth also means an abundance of opportunities for clinicians as well as professionally qualified healthcare managers. India requires people like you to prepare and take leadership positions in the near future to build capacity in the Healthcare industry.


Considering the specialized nature of the sector and the fast pace at which it is growing, future leaders like you will not only have to come from within the sector, but also from allied and other similar sectors.


To develop the next generation of healthcare managers, these managers need to be equipped with the necessary skills and competencies relating to multiple disciplines such as strategic thinking, finance, data analytics, law, operations, and quality assurance/ control.



This needs a structured program of learning like that of a PGDM HM course at IFIM business school. The PGDM Healthcare Management Program (PGDM HM) is designed to cater to this need. While doctors, nurses and paramedical staff as well as AYUSH doctors are key to the sector, professional healthcare managers play an equally significant role in many ways: in ensuring hospitals operate efficiently, making them self-sustainable and financially sound; creating a patient-focused organization that takes care of the patient in a holistic manner.


The design and delivery of the PGDM Healthcare Management Program(PGDM HM) is a combined effort of two highly reputed organisation in Management education and healthcare skill development (IFIM business school, and Falcon Skills). Inputs and contributions from leading academicians and industry experts have been incorporated right from the design stage to ensure academic rigour, industry engagement with a solid hands-on experiential learning and to ensure that the program is best suited to the needs of the healthcare industry.
