“As someone who decided to plunge into research after ten years of programming in the field (developmental disabilities in the context of global health), the ERM course was a perfect match to build the skill. The content, the online mode, the gentle delivery, the flexibility, the generosity with extra time for someone like me who juggles two jobs, a kid, and a busy home, was incredible. I now have a fair idea of research methods and am inspired to make research easy for younger colleagues in my organization. To remove the fear that looms large in the minds of the staff for whom research remains the domain of the leadership in the organization, is a personal goal for me. If I succeed in supporting them to understand the value that implementation research can add to their work, I will consider it a job done well. I owe IPH and the ERM course a lot for providing me with the motivation to take this forward!! This course is a huge recommend for anyone looking to build research method knowledge and skills.”

“I was very naive about scientific writing and especially reference management. This course was suggested to me by my faculty. Although i was little skeptical on how this course would go, i took it up and thoroughly followed every lecture and assignment. To my surprise the lectures opened up a brand new world of academia and i was overwhelmed. Though i am still an amateur in this field, i am confident i can improve. Thanks to the lectures of eSWaRM. Keep up the good work. Hopefully to join another course with IPH.”

I am looking forward to learn from more such courses and thank you all the teachers for this activity, thank you very much.

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!
Shobhit Mathur

When I have joined as BPM I dint not have any knowledge about National Rural Health Mission but getting into the work I have personally learned what is NRHM & what are its programmes, associated Reports. But what knowledge I learned it was like raw material to complete our work. But by E-PHM course I have got full knowledge of NHM programmes how it works & what are its objectives. Most important is why this NHM is introduced & how it is useful for public health. I mainly learned how to calculate indicators. Hope By the completion of this course we BPM’s become Gem of NHM

Pavithra H

Block Programme Manager, Mysore

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.

When I was looking for a way to update my public health background, my friend suggested me this course where in i feel it is the excellent education delivered in a format especially designed for busy proffesionals.I feel that the programme has a great graduate level overview of the current state in public health.

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.
