Benefits for Hospitals


1. Why should hospitals hire from HOSM program?


HOSM program takes candidates from the healthcare industry and trains them in the best in class healthcare management skills. Hospitals are often stretched for resources and look for productivity from candidates from the day they join the workforce. They do not have the luxury of time and cannot afford to let employees ramp up for extended period of time before they become productive.



Here, HOSM program presents “Hands on” and Job ready manpower to take up assignments in the non-medical services. Hence, this saves ramp up costs for hospitals.


2. As far as candidates are concerned, how are the candidates different from those of other healthcare management program?


HOSM candidates have strong conceptual & practical exposure to all key & critical areas of hospital administration.


The 3 month internship program brings them up to speed with the best management practices in hospitals. The intensive internship program is a key differentiator for our candidates. The internship and course training equips candidates with Out of box thinking and solution development approach with holistic understanding of all aspects of non-clinical areas in healthcare delivery & administration. Rigorous “On the job training” and internship mentoring gives the candidate exposure into the best practices in the best hospitals.


The program’s learning methodologies and discerning faculty are drawn from the best leadership practitioners in the healthcare administration.


This course is among the first of its kind  with comprehensive understanding of all aspects of non-clinical services and its linkages with clinical services for seamless healthcare delivery.


3. What roles can candidates fit in a hospital/healthcare industry?


The candidates are trained across several critical functions in hospital management. Hence, they have skills that are fungible to handle all functions in the healthcare administration. This provides flexibility for hospital management team to deploy them as per their operational strategy.
