The GIM Health Care program powered by upGrad also provides ample career prospects that go beyond the fields of medicine, nursing, and therapy.

“Healthcare has seen a significant rise in the adoption of technology in the last few years and has also made the domain popular among non-medical professionals. Unlike yesteryears, the diaspora has expanded from conventional topics to also covering new-age elements like Healthcare Marketing, Benchmarking in Healthcare, Ethical & Legal Issues in Healthcare, Operations and Material management, etc. and offers much more than nursing jobs. Hence, our strategic partnership with GIM – that brings with it an education legacy will support us in our mission of building a skilled nation together and shall be equipped to take up the leadership roles of tomorrow,” concluded Phalgun Kompalli, Co-founder, upGrad.
