Vishwanath BR

Block Programme Manager, Koppa

Being a business management graduate, i had less knowledge about the health programmes working as Block Programme Manager under National Health Mission. After enrolling to the ePHM course, i have learnt about the national programme in depth and gained more knowledge. This course helped me out in analysis and interpretation of the data which depends on the indicators. Now i can easily validate the data regarding the health programmes especially in Health Monitoring Information System. I am very thankful to our state health department and IPH Bangalore team.

Testimonials from ePHM Advanced

Although my colleague recommended this course to me, I felt a radical change in my understanding towards the programme, while pursuing this course through Institute of Public Health, Bangalore.  The course and its content has been very useful and the entire programme has been designed to cover all aspects in public health. I am extremely thankful to IPH for introducing such a wonderful course, especially for working professionals.

Jatinder pal singh chhatwal

I was very much fascinated to be a part of the ePHM course (Batch – C). Being in teaching profession it was joyful experience of 6 months to sit back again in the chair of student. The online testing pattern was always a challenge for me to score 100%. The testing procedure was very interesting which taught me the importance of time management. The course content enriched my knowledge on health care system. The systematic approach on various policies, management and critical issues of health care were dealt meticulously by the team. I’m proud to say that the course has helped me directly or indirectly to secure a job in Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd., as Senior Manager, Training and Development. Currently I’m applying the principles of management learnt in this course which are serving as a good foundation to my new job. I personally feel that the course content can be an eye opener for the health care professional to develop strategies that are needed to fill the lacunae in the health care policies of India.

As the quallity of the material were of such a caliber i could now step in to the full time courses for moving further. the discussion forum and the assignment made us to interrogate with the fellow trainees and the resource persons. I Should thank the tutor  and the team who were so supportive and were always willing to guide or correct us throughout the course. I would definitely recommend this course to others because this has given a  strong base on how to understand the public health and how to move on to reach out to the community by increasing of knowledge and skill in doing so.

The course is comprehensive, practical and contemporary not just for the beginners but for those who are acquainted in public health too. The course content and supplementary reading material provided is magnificent and splendid. The faculty and the course tutor all are treat to work with. Thoroughly enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend this course to all public health seekers, to enhance their skill and raise their penchant for PHM.

I am a public health professional with 13 years of experience but did not have any relevant qualification. This course has made me acquire a formal qualification which I  can display in my CV. Now I am a certified and qualified public health professional. I wish many more people who are working in this field but do not have a formal qualification take up this course. Its easy, flexible and have cooperative faculties.This course has helped me gain an insight into the entire gamut of public health and I have an understanding of all the programmes under the aegis of NHM in India. This has surely helped in providing me with technical knowledge on various govt projects and schemes on health and nutrition. Wish this course all the best. 
Niranjan Bariyar

Institute of Public Health’s e-Learning program is a great opportunity for anyone working in the area of healthcare in India. The course has provided me with a perspective on how public health system is structured in India, its historical context and it key issues. This in turn has given me an appreciation of its needs – be it resources, financial, skills or technology, and therefore proving invaluable for my new venture in health sector. The course itself is very well structured and moves at a gentle pace that working professionals can cope up with. It combines class room study with research topics that makes learning a two-way process. The faculty and the staff are extremely supportive and go out of the way to discuss specific questions from participants on a one-on-one basis. An incredible experience overall!
