Symbiosis has a proven track record in the field of education with management education being our flagship. With changing times, Symbiosis has diversified into other education arenas like computers, law, information technology, geo- informatics, etc.
Given the paradigm shift which the health care sector is experiencing health science probably represents the most ideal field for Symbiosis to innovate. It is a domain where there is a constant need to change with the times and continuously review, analyze and upgrade competencies both in the medical profession as well as in management. The ample opportunities which the health sector presents by way of research further justify the establishment of the Symbiosis Institute of Health Sciences (SIHS).
SIHS has an objective of bringing together professionals from diverse disciplines also keeping in mind the diverse needs of the existing healthcare sector as also new stakeholders like the IT sector, The Insurance sector, Diagnostics Pharma as well fitness industry to design contemporary need based academic programmes pertinent to this ever expanding sector. I am sure the Institute is ideally poised to pursue this mission of striving for excellence in the field of health sciences which is important to one and all.
Inputs from a number of diverse but interrelated and interdependent fields have enriched the programme content and have made it up to date with recent advances in all the related areas of healthcare. These will help the students to evolve into becoming the vital link in the healthcare delivery system of the future.
I wish you an enriching and rewarding experience in the times to come.
