PG Diploma in Hospital Administration

Course Description


The hospital industry in India is growing at a rapid pace and is expected to touch USD 133 billion by 2023. The healthcare industry in general is expected to reach USD 372 billion by 2022. Healthcare has become one of India’s largest sectors both in terms of revenue and employment. This rapid growth in this industry has resulted in great demand for healthcare managers who can work in settings like hospitals, nursing homes, clinics and community health organizations. Healthcare administrators are involved in efficiently running patient care services. They also play a strategic role in planning, coordinating and supervising the functions of healthcare facilities and the staff who work there. To fulfil this role, they require in-depth understanding of both healthcare policies and administration.

The PG Diploma in Hospital and Healthcare management (PGD-HHM) is a one-year blended-learning course that will provide the student with managerial skills essential for planning and administering healthcare services. The student will learn how to operationally manage the clinical and support services in a hospital.

Students will also learn about medical laws and regulations governing healthcare services in India and the role of insurance in healthcare. In the second-semester, the students will get a 30-day rotation in various departments of a leading hospital to observe administrative and operational aspects of hospital management.

This course will prepare the students for administrative and managerial roles in the hospital sector. Successful students may find job opportunities across the spectrum of healthcare services such as small and large clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, and medical colleges. In addition, opportunities exist in allied industries like health insurance, medical KPOs, pharmaceutical and medical device companies.
