    Published on June 30, 2018

    Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government announced an ambitious project in the Union Budget on February 1, 2018. Nicknamed ‘Modicare’, the National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS) is envisioned to extend insurance coverage for 500 million individuals in the country upto Rs. 5 lakh from the existing Rs.30000 cover. The move has enunciated the need for infrastructural development and employment needs to provide secondary and tertiary health care to four in ten Indians within the earmarked insurance cap per family.

    Institute of Clinical Research India (ICRI),which is recently awarded as “Best Institution in Clinical Research & Healthcare” by Economics Times  is ready to take on this move as a boon and provide advanced courses in the field of clinical research and non-medical staffing. This premium institution offers a multitude of courses from undergraduate to postgraduate to PhD in the field of Clinical Research, Pharmacology, Pharmacovigilance, Healthcare Management, Pharma Marketing, Public Health, Hospital Administration and many more including MBA degrees in specialized subjects.  ICRI stands out as a premier institution in this field with a unique course curriculum and fantastic academic partnerships, ensuring employability of successful students.

    Mr. Shiv Raman Dugal,Chairman, Institute of Clinical Research India (ICRI) shared, “The new healthcare proposal by the government has many prospective elements in it to elevate the standard of healthcare services in our country. As more people are brought under the healthcare scheme, there will be a great surge in demand for qualified medical and non-medical professionals. At ICRI we intend to foster professional excellence in design and execution of clinical research, thereby contributing to enhancing the Clinical Research culture in India. It is a great time to consider unconventional, specialized courses that we offer, to build a great career in the healthcare industry.”

    Mr. Dugal added, “Clinical research is an area of deep knowledge and expertise and expands the horizon of career choices for students inclined to pursue a profession in this field. Research and other clinical staff form the majority of any hospital’s staff strength and we prepare students with unique course content and teaching methods at ICRI. The right guidance can help students become exceptional professionals, exactly what is needed in India to create healthcare standards at par with global benchmarks.”

    Universal health schemes like the NHPS calls for spatial distribution of government run healthcare facilities across the country, having the capacity and manpower to provide equal healthcare to every citizen. The government’s plan to set up regional health centres as an ancillary to the primary project also introduces a rise in demand for qualified professionals, trained and equipped to provide medical and non-medical services. Investment in healthcare is seen as the means to further the demographic dividend in an economy, envisioning an equitable society. ICRI offers in-depth training in the field of Clinical Data Management (CDM) and creates an army of trained, energetic young professionals to help the country achieve healthcare standards.
