    Programme Title              : General Management Programme for Healthcare Executives (Batch-1) Module-4
                                                 Executive Education Open Programme

    Programme Directors    : Profs. Shankar Venkatagiri & Rajluxmi V Murthy

    Programme Dates           : 4 & 12 – 17 March 2017

    Programme Venue         : M-12, IIMB Campus

    Programme Overview   :
    The well-being of a population requires the coordinated participation of hospitals and healthcare institutions, pharmaceutical firms and their products, diagnostic services, healthcare technologies, informatics, insurance providers, entrepreneurs and finally, the community of healthcare recipients.

    Expenditure on healthcare is on the rise in India. Having reached the $100 billion mark in 2015, the spending is set to triple over the next 5 years. Consequently, there is a massive requirement for trained management professionals in healthcare. As with many other sectors, employees who are competent in their lines of work are identified to step into the shoes of managers. In the case of hospitals, senior doctors and nurses are charged with responsibilities that were not part of their training at college.

    The GMHE is a part-time certificate program that is aimed at high performing individuals in the healthcare domain, who are looking to transition from a functional role to a management role. This sectoral program is modelled on the highly successful Executive General Management Program (EGMP) offered under IIMB’s executive education programs for over a decade. The GMHE has been designed and developed by IIMB in partnership with apollo MedSkills, the skills arm of apollo hospitals. The academic content will be delivered by IIMB faculty, clinicians / administrators from some of the pre-eminent hospitals and healthcare service providers. There will also be frequent interactions with practioners from allied disciplines such as pharmaceuticals and insurance, which today play an important role in determining the success of healthcare delivery models. Participants in the GMHE will have ample opportunity to develop core business skills and competencies that are pertinent to their chosen domain within healthcare. They will involve themselves actively in case discussions, practicums, and interactive exercises in the classroom. The program’s activities will help participants in networking with peers from diverse backgrounds.
