 ISB to Launch Management Program for Doctors, Healthcare Professionals
The Indian School of Business (ISB) will launch a one-of-its-kind Healthcare Management Program (HMP), to groom doctors and healthcare professionals to deliver excellence in healthcare management. The one year part-time program, which will commence in January 2016, has been designed and developed by the Max Institute of Healthcare Management and the Center for Executive Education at the ISB and will enable doctors and healthcare professionals to move into leadership positions and drive the growth of the health sector.

Analjit Singh, founder, Max India Group and founder supporter, Mohali campus of ISB, said, "There is a serious paucity of well-trained quality healthcare management professionals. This one year program is a step to remove this glaring inadequacy in India's healthcare setup."

Announcing the program, Ajit Rangnekar, dean, ISB, said, "It, consistent with ISB's vision of grooming future leaders for India and the world, will create future leaders and visionaries in the healthcare sector."

This program has been designed in close collaboration with the healthcare sector, practicing professionals and academia. An academic advisory council, comprising eminent faculty from across the world, provides academic oversight and an industry advisory council that includes senior leaders from organizations like Max Healthcare Global Hospitals, Fortis Healthcare Ltd, Care Hospitals, and Narayana Netralaya brings in the industry perspective.
