I have done my graduation in dentistry from Haryana. I belong to a small city Sonipat in Haryana. While working as a dentist, I have seen that Public Health initiatives affect people in all states. To my mind, Public Health is the most important aspect of medicine. The health services sector has grown enormously over the past few decades in a highly diversified manner the government sector in primary care and in hospitals, the not for profit or voluntary sector in health care, health information systems and all of these sectors need capable administrators and analysts. Public health internships and practicums will help me to apply theories and skills in a professional environment, such as policy evaluation, data analysis and healthcare marketing or promotions. Internship with FHTS will give me more insight into the practical and realistic glimpse of working in a public health environment. Further this will help me in learning, providing and managing public health education programs that help individuals, families, and their communities to sustain a healthy living. I aspire to be a professional in Medical and Health Sciences field to serve my community. On successful completion of my course, I intend to use my expertise gained in real world, utilize my skills and knowledge for betterment of society. I would like to engage myself in some research-based projects in the field of public health.  By achieving my degree in MBA in Hospital and Healthcare Management, a lot of opportunities will open up for me in the field of health care which includes Hospitals, Non- Governmental organizations and multinational firms such as PWC, Deloitte, ZS Associate or TCS. The core content of the course will help me in building my knowledge and will enable me to develop management skills. I would strengthen my career and value as an employee.

Testimonial

I want to thank FHTS for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to pursue virtual public health internship during lockdown period. I have gained valuable insights into public health over the past 3 months. Because FHTS gave me an opportunity to work on variety of projects. I had a chance to make presentations, write blog post and also to compare the situation of COVID-19 among different countries using Smart Rapid Tracker. Moreover, it was an incredibly rewarding for me to able to learn about the research paper writing and how to extract variables for the same. I truly learned the importance of dedication and teamwork while working on project. I am highly grateful to the entire staff of FHTS for being very supportive and helpful. I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Ashish sir and Harpreet ma’am for wonderful mentoring while working on research paper. Indeed, a learning experience. Thank you for an amazing three months journey.
