The comprehensive curriculum and practical approach of the MHA program at SRHU has helped me excel in my career, and I would highly recommend the program to anyone looking to pursue a career in healthcare administration. On completion, I gained 3 years of experience working as a hospital administrator. Additionally, my one year experience as a project coordinator for a World Bank funded project further strengthened my leadership and management skills.  

I am glad that I decided to pursue my MHA (Master of Hospital Administration) from SRHU Dehradun. The university provides an excellent platform to enhance academic skills with a wonderful integration of practical exposure through its teaching hospital; which is one of the best hospitals in Uttarakhand. I am blessed to be an Alumnus of SRHU.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to my faculty and seniors. My experience at SRHU was great. The MHA program from SRHU has helped me in enhancing my professional and interpersonal skills because of which I can contribute significantly to the hospital administration field.

I graduated from SRHU with a master’s degree in Hospital Administration in 2021 with a solid foundation of hospital/healthcare management. After graduation, I landed a job as an International Patient Care Manager at a Medical Tourism organization eventually working my way up to a senior manager position. To recent graduates I would say, take risks and try new things. Also, networking is incredibly important, so don't be afraid to reach out to alumni or professionals in your desired field.

Pursuing the MHA program from SRHU has been the right decision that I took in my career path. The daily postings at SRHU’s own NABH accredited teaching hospital provided me the hands on experience and confidence of handling the day to day operations of a hospital. It was because of this kind of hospital exposure that I got the opportunity to work at the prestigious AIIMS, Delhi as a Patient Care Manager soon after completing my MHA degree.

My time at SRHU has been full of learning and new experiences. The faculty is very helpful and always available for students. The MHA program here provides ample opportunities to work with various departments of the hospital and sharpen our healthcare management skills. From the skills learnt and the guidance that I received at SRHU, I got placed at AIIMS, Delhi immediately upon the completion of my MHA degree.
