Article by a HCM student : 

Hi, I am Shreya Shah, Student of HCM, 2018-20, the First batch in Healthcare specialization at KJ SIMSR. 

Everything has its first time and this was our time. After persuading the Biomedical engineering from L.D. College of engineering in Ahmedabad I decided to go for specialization in Healthcare management field. Hence I decided to join the reputed B-School. The idea of coming to the financial capital of India and join B-school was quite thrilling and thought that I would spend my 2 years with the most aspiration and talented bunch of people from all over the country. 

I was excited about what I really wanted to do, about opportunities, learnings and of course placements. It is said that: "success is not about what you get but it is about what you make what you get" and that attitude to peruse it. What I receive from the SIMSR is that attitude and that opportunities to complete my dream. 

Being a fresh graduate initially it was kind of difficult to interact with the students of different ages, but soon we have an Icebreaking event - outbound (Do not Miss) and one another 3-day event named as ‘All is well'. This event would be the most memorable for any SIMSRite, and especially for our batch. Being the first batch of HCM we found all the "immense support from all of our seniors as well as our colleagues". In this competition, every class has to compete with every class in terms of creativity, promotions and stage performances with managing the classes all the time. For the first time, a student comes together with different names and other innovative ideas to showcase their class and win the final title. One memorable event in this event was my Dance performance on "Gujarati tradition (Ras-Garba)", and this was when the entire batch of students of PGDM recognize my talent and help me also to bond with people in different streams.

Having around "28 student-driven committees in our college is the most happening/thrilling thing" with the various events, conferences, fest, and celebration. The kind of exposure student gets in these kinds of activities is unparallel to any class of learning. All these committees are no less than "small corporate world", they include hiring, performing, evaluating and analysing. 

Being the student of the first batch it was kind of difficult to us. Being at SIMSR that something to develop me, myself. What we have is the amazing platform, an opportunity to develop and attitude to make the most out of it in the next 2 years. It helped to develop me, my skill set, and also frame in well define an opinion that what I wanted to do, where I wanted to go, and how I wanted to achieve it?

"Recognise the Opportunity what we get"!!! Being a student of healthcare management, everyone was worried about the opportunity what and where it would be getting, I got an opportunity to work with a live project at "KJ Somaiya of hospital and research centre" in the very 1st month of Curriculum started. Other than that we find various immersion programs with international Universities, also we got many different kinds of the live project in every single field.

In the end, all I would like to say is: Life is a journey, not a destination, also sometimes this life, this journey that teaches you a lot about your destination.

 I felt the wall of the tunnel shiver. The master alarm squealed through my earphones. Almost simultaneously, Jack yelled down to me that there was a warning light on. Fleeting but spectacular sights snapped into ans out of view, the snow, the shower of debris, the moon, looming close and big, the dazzling sunshine for once unfiltered by layers of air. The last twelve hours before re-entry were particular bone-chilling. During this period, I had to go up in to command module. Even after the fiery re-entry splashing down in 81o water in south pacific, we could still see our frosty breath inside the command module.
