Cygnus Hospitals in partnership with Manav Rachna International University will be offering a course on Healthcare – Bachelor of Business Administration in Healthcare Management in India. This course will offer an intensive and deep insight into the healthcare delivery system over three years. Of this, one year will be spent on on-site internship and real life project with hands-on training at various Cygnus Hospitals. Cygnus will also be deeply involved in the course matter evolution and preparation.
Dr Dinesh Batra, Director and Group CEO of Cygnus Hospitals, said that I am very happy to be a part of this initiative as the healthcare field is facing a severe manpower crunch with an especially acute shortage of middle and senior level managers. We are thus forced to look at other industries like retail and hospitality to obtain skilled human resources. This entails wasting precious time and money in retraining them. Our aim is also to open up new and more specialised avenues when Lack of critical skill set amongst the students limit their employability.
Dr Prashant Bhalla, President, MREI, said that We are very pleased to have Cygnus Hospitals on board to design and implement this program as we have always believed that a strong industry connect is necessary to produce students who can excel in their fields.
Dr. Shuchin Bajaj, Director, Cygnus Hospitals said that This will solve our problem of shortage of skilled manpower as we expand from 11 hospitals to 25 hospitals in the next two years. The lack of adequate quality supply has driven the need for Industry ready training requirements. Hence, we have stepped in to fulfill this need gap. Having to face this challenge on a regular basis and envisioning a vast scope for such specialization, it was imperative to use our internal talent and best practices to set up a management program that would benefit potential students with an aptitude for health related services for years to come.
Dr Sudhir Gupta, Director, Cygnus Hospitals said that We will be closely involved in the implementation and delivery of this programme and will also guide students for Dr Naveen Nishchal, Director, Cygnus Hospitals, said that “This program will help create middle-level managers who can aspire to reach top level posts in the healthcare sector”.
Dr Amit Bhalla, Vice President MREI, Dr Sanjay Shrivastava, Vice Chancellor MRU and Dr N C Wadhwa, Vice Chancellor, MRIU, were also present at the occasion.
