The Indian healthcare sector is growing at a tremendous pace and is projected to become a US$ 280 billion industry by 2020. This, in turn, has increased the demand for skilled healthcare professionals to meet the managerial challenges of this sector. The Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta (IIMC) has introduced a one-year Full time Residential Post-Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Management (PGCHM), tailor-made for the healthcare practitioners and administrators.
The PGCHM aims to impart cutting edge management education to trained healthcare professionals from varying domains. This programme is designed to address the specific needs of aspiring healthcare practitioners and administrators by offering a combination of academic modules in the broad field of management, and hands-on practical experience by way of Industry Immersion Programme (IIP).
The program draws upon a reputed network of healthcare service providers for an effective delivery of the programme in both its dimensions – the academic and the industry immersion.
