Loyola-CMC to launch new health programme
Loyola Institute of Business Administration (LIBA) and Christian Medical College (CMC) on Monday launched their Executive Diploma in Healthcare Management Programme.
The programme was inaugurated by Dr Edwin Joe, director of Medical Education, Government of Tamil Nadu in the presence of Father Victor Roch, Dean Administration, LIBA, Dr M J Xavier, chairperson of LIBA Management Development Centre and Dr Samuel N J David, head of department, Hospital Management Studies & Staff Training & Development, CMC Vellore, in the presence of faculty members and students of LIBA.
Dr Edwin 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.”
In his comments, Dr Xavier said, “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 3 to 4 years. Topics such as public health, patient safety, medical ethics etc, will be taught by CMC Vellore faculty while business management topics will be covered by LIBA faculty.”
Dr David Samuel said, “In this day and age, core competency and team work aids one in succeeding in their profession. This course launched today (Monday) is aimed and designed to bridge the gap between clinical and business world and create leaders in the healthcare industry”.
