Needs of Management Training in Hospital Administration:
In India Management education has a special academic discipline was recognized in the early years of second five year plan and was started as an organized Postgraduate course on the recommendation of a team of Experts from Ford Foundation and Government of India. The Indian Institute of Management as an apex training center for such courses came up initially at Calcutta followed by starting similar institute at Ahmedabad and later at other places of the country for preparing Executives to take up challenges of good corporate management in the industrial sector.
In the field of Health Care Management also the health survey and Planning committee of Government of India had the foresight of visualizing the job of hospital administrators in a professional line in those days itself and recommended to develop the specialists in the field of hospital management as a distinct specialty. In the year 1961 Dr.Mc Gibony a Consultant in Hospital Administration in the WHO was invited by the Government of India as an Expert to deal with the issues pertaining to the improvement of medical care and hospital services in our country. He strongly recommended for the introduction of Hospital Administration as a separate specialty like any other broad specialty of medical sciences.
