Equip heathcare professionals

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Joe said, “Previously, the healthcare system was predominantly doctor oriented. But now, the scenario has changed with management playing a significant role in healthcare. Improved patient care can be achieved through successful management of hospital operations and services. This course aims to provide management skills that can be applied on a day-to-day basis in their organisations which will, in turn, enable them to be successful healthcare administrators.”

Dr Xavier said that,“This joint certification programme is designed to equip professionals in the healthcare industry to take successful management decisions. The one-year course caters to healthcare professionals with work experience of three-four years. Topics such as public health, patient safety and medical ethics will be taught by CMC Vellore faculty while business management topics will be covered by LIBA faculty.”
