    Healthcare professionals are essential in enacting and enforcing policies and keeping the healthcare system running professionally. Today, we need these professionals more than ever.

    It is really encouraging to see government’s strong commitment towards Indian Healthcare sector in budget 2018. The budget has paved the way for the world’s largest government funded healthcare scheme – National Health Coverage Scheme. Under the scheme the govt. has taken incredible initiatives to empower poor and vulnerable families in terms of providing healthcare facilities. The scheme will definitely have far-reaching implications for the domestic insurance sector also and will bring substantial growth in health insurers’ premiums. The union government has committed Rs 1200 crore in this budget for this flagship program. This rapid growth in the sector will push the demand for healthcare professionals to a greater extent.

    Why India needs more healthcare professionals now:

    1. The government will establish 1.5 lakh Health and Wellness Centres.
    2. These centres will provide comprehensive health care, including for non-communicable diseases and maternal and child health services.
    3. The centres will also provide free essential drugs and diagnostic services.
    4. The government will provide medical cover of up to Rs 5 lakh to over 10 crore poor and vulnerable families, constituting 40 percent of India’s total population.
    5. Government will set up 24 new Government Medical Colleges and Hospitals by upgrading existing district hospitals in the country.
    6. The scheme will benefit 5.22 crore families with a life insurance cover of Rs 2 lakh on payment of a premium of only Rs 330/-per annum.
    7. A merger of three United India Insurance, National Insurance and the Oriental Insurance will improve the sectors overall profitability by reducing competition.

    Of all the establishment of new govt colleges and hospitals, health and wellness centres will in turn increase the demand for quality healthcare professionals in India. This will definitely create the need for a specialized course in healthcare management and MBA in healthcare management is the answer to this particular need.

    MBA in healthcare management can be a good choice for graduate or postgraduate students from life science, microbiology, pharmacy, biotechnology, physiotherapy, medicine, nursing, dentistry, homeopathy, ayurvedic, veterinary science and paramedics and others with a graduate degree in BBA, B.Com., B.Sc., B.Sc.P.T., B.A. B.S.W. etc..

    Besides the medical staff, the growing healthcare industry today is in need of efficient non-medical staff, particularly to cater to the hospital administration and management related responsibilities. To develop the next generation of healthcare professionals, they need to be equipped with the necessary skill-set and competencies relating to multiple disciplines such as strategic thinking, data analytics, finance, law, operations, and quality assurance/ control.

    This particularly calls for a structured program like an International MBA program in Healthcare Management, jointly introduced in India by Asia Pacific Healthcare Management and RUDN University, Russia.

    The healthcare management program will allow you to stay and study for a whole one semester at RUDN University, Russia. Students will be supported with 100% international placement assistance by RUDN University. In India the placement assistance will be provided by Asia Pacific Healthcare.

    The program will also include a proficiency course in Russian Language, History and Culture.
