Medical Tourism..
The TOI had an article covering some aspects of Medical Tourism in one of the supplements last week.But that focussed mainly on the integration of tourism with the medical establishment,without any mention of doctors being managers of such programmes.The people coming to India for medical procedures lay a lot of emphasis on "peripheral services"(read accomodation,travel itinaries etcetera) according to the article.

As per my analysis of the situation,a hospital would want to maximise their medical tourists by having better heathcare providers and better peripheral services in an easily available package.But this hardly involves any decisions regarding the procedure of choice/outcome of surgery/insurance issues.With that in mind,I wonder how much of an edge a doctor with an MBA has over a non medical graduate/MBA.

Looking forward to more on this.

Hey Ankur,
More and more schools abroad,especially in the US and in Australia are offering management programmes targetted at healthcare workers.
Some of these are dual programmes (MD/MBA) while others are fulltime.
Most of the doctors going in for these,seem to be doing so with a mind to better manage their private practises and have a fair number of years of experience doing the same.
The other question I'd been hoping to get answered was whether these schools(via GMAT,I'd think) would accept fresh medical graduates.
So far the answer seems to be in the negative as most schools look for applicants with a minimum work ex of two years.
Anyhow,any new information will be posted.Hope that helped.
Regards.

Informative article.
As a medstudent,considering an MBA,I'd like to make a few points.

Reasons why many docs go the MBA way-
1.They're looking for a better work environment.
(There should be something along the lines of the RSPCA for docs.Seriously.)
2.The corporatization of medicine.
3.Longer incubation period of a medical post/graduate.
(Average age at graduation-24 years.Postgraduation is 3-5 years.)
4.Closure of avenues in postgraduate medicine.
(PLAB shut the door on Indians,USMLE's a tough nut to crack,
Aussies not easier either and India ofcourse has reservations,limited seats
and leakage of papers every year.)
5.Money (debatable and questionable.Either line of work could prove
more lucrative in the long run.)

Looking forward to more on the subject.
Regards.

Hungarian inventions include the noiseless match, Rubik's cube and non-Euclidian geometry. A number of other important inventions, including holography, the ballpoint pen (invented by Br, who gave his name to the invention), the theory of the hydrogen bomb, and the BASICprogramming language, were invented by Hungarians who fled the country prior to World War II

I believe some of you answered in the negative.Any more views/information?

2.When can a medical student give the CAT.Most engineering students I know gave/are giving the CAT during their final year.A medstudent must complete a year of internship after the final year.Is there a time frame by when the degree should be complete for a person to become eligible for the exam?

A FIVE YEAR internship? Wonder which state(and country) you're in. Who would think of passing this legislation. All the crazy ones passed yet atleast had politicos behind it. Eleven K is teh stipend? Either way that's just terrible.
