Dr. Dharminder Nagar, Managing Director, Paras Health said, “Today the Indian Healthcare industry is facing a paradox. On one side we are the second most popular healthcare destination in Asia for medical tourism and on the other, we face a huge shortage of super specialty doctors. At present, there are only 25041 seats in private and government colleges providing post-graduate education. Considering the same, we as active private players have a major role to play. Our aim is to train the doctors in areas we exist – the locations where there is limited or scarce access to specialized tertiary healthcare services – and then motivate them to work in the same area. These doctors opting for DNB Courses can have the benefit of getting an exposure to how a corporate super multi-specialty works.”
Dr. Nagar also states, “We are very proud that we are today not only providing tertiary healthcare facilities and treatment solutions to metro and Tier III cities as well but have also forayed into providing a center for higher education and knowledge to the future doctors of this country. The doctors who will avail the DNB courses here at Paras will benefit in multiple ways. They will not only gain an education but also learn about administrative, operations and many other areas to get adequate exposure on all the aspects of how a tertiary hospital works. We are also including training the doctors not just in the medical field but also how the training of support staff like the nurses and paramedics are trained to provide the kind of support that a doctor would require. In this way, we are providing a holistic training and education.”
