Those applying for the PG certificate programme should have a graduation or equivalent degree, along with a minimum of two years of relevant work experience in various healthcare roles.
IIM Raipur said that the selection process will be carried out in two stages and candidates will be evaluated based on their profiles, experiences, and potential contributions. “These programmes aim at equipping participants with an in-depth understanding of the digital health sphere, propelling them towards unrivalled career growth and excellence,” the institute said.

This course emerged from an exhaustive two-year research effort involving eminent global authorities in digital health. With insights gathered from more than 60 influential figures across diverse healthcare sectors such as hospitals, pharmaceuticals, research and development, med-tech, information technology, regulatory bodies, and policy-making entities."
