To bridge the gnawing gap in India’s healthcare education, UPES, a specialization-focused, multi-disciplinary university, has introduced the School of Health Sciences with graduate level courses. On the sidelines of the announcement, UPES also hosted a Conclave on ‘The Science of Well Being’ with industry specialists to discuss the science and management of the health and wellness sector and the instrumental role it will play in building the NextGen of Indian Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Industry.
The Conclave has been attended by innovators in digital health, start-ups, researchers and academicians, corporates, industry experts and medical practitioners.
In the conclave, Dr. Shikha Nehru Sharma, Founder & MD of Nutri Health, talked about the need for integration of technology with basic education of healthcare and how the silos are breaking down, making way for collaborations as a growth driver. She stated, “Digital marketing has made things easier even on the business side of the healthcare industry and the use of cross-functional technology in the processes have opened several career scopes for the upcoming talent in the field of food nutrition sciences.”
Dr Neeraj Mahindroo, Dean of School of Health Sciences, said, “Innovation in action is important and unless we create a potential difference knowledge won’t flow in the right direction. To bring curiosity amongst the students, we have tapped the technologies that interest the students more than theoretical data. This redesigned health education curriculum will aim at holistic learning and make students industry ready to transform the dynamics of the healthcare industry.”
