My husband being an alumnus of Sankara Nethralaya, we keep getting mailers giving information on various happenings in the institution. It was one such mailer informing about a certificate course in hospital management that drew my attention.
I wanted to get some idea about what was involved in managing a hospital and the fact that the course timings were convenient, the duration short but not too short and finally, the impeccable reputation of the institution all contributed to me applying for the course. Within two days, I was enrolled in the course. Everything was seamlessly managed through email. My doubts were cleared, online payments were arranged and I was all set to attend the course.
From the first day, I recognized that this was a professionally organized course for professionals. How much we can take back home from the course depends on how much we are involved in the learning process.
The faculty comprised of experts in their chosen fields with a lot of practical knowledge. The classroom provided a good platform for them to teach us how theory and practice could be integrated. The modules themselves gave us an introduction to the various facets of running a hospital finance, administration, personnel, law, technology, human resource, etc.
The faculty was open to discussions and questions and in fact encouraged us to mail them with feedback and doubts if any. The entire experience was very enriching and has sown the seed in my mind to learn more about the various topics.
I hope SN Academy arranges periodical one day seminars on individual topics so that we are able to keep abreast of what is happening in the management field. I also hope that in future more faculty from Sankara Nethralaya also participate in the program as collectively they have a wealth of experience which they can share with us.
My best wishes to SN Academy for the success of all its ventures and endeavours.
