Over the last 6 months I’ve been back to the ISB campus on many occasions. However, Solstice was a completely different experience, especially since we could see some familiar faces around!
All our gang was back and we spent 3 great days together. Friends, parties, booze, Indian Ocean live, paintball and, of course, gyaan sessions (with anyone who’s company name had the word “consulting” the most sought after!) It was amazing stuff. And since a picture says more than a thousand words, here’s some snaps from Solstice…

It’s time for another healthcare summit at ISB. The good thing this time around is that we have a summit specifically catering to hospitals. The Healthcare Club this year has split the summit into 2 parts, the pharma summit happened a while back and the healthcare summit is happening on the 28th of November.
And there are some biggies landing up for the event:
- Mr. Analjit Singh, Chairman, Max Healthcare
- Dr. Kushagra Katariya, CEO, Artemis Health Sciences
- Dr. K. Ravindranath, CEO, Global Hospitals
- Brig. Joe Curian, COO, Global Hospitals
- Dr. Nayan Shah, President, Hospital Management Services, Ambani Life Sciences Centre
- Daljit Singh, President, Strategy & Organizational Development, Fortis Healthcare
- Dr. Ram Kumar Narain, Reliance Health
- Dr. K. Hariprasad, CEO, Apollo Hyderabad

And that should, hopefully, bring along a ton of opportunities for people focusing on the business side of healthcare like us doctors with MBAs.
This should be a great opportunity for this batch’s group of docs to showcase their talents in front of all these potential recruiters. Look out for some updates on the Summit this week.
Since joining ISB I have received a lot of queries from other doctors and healthcare professionals about healthcare management, the opportunities for doctors after an MBA and getting into a b-school like ISB. The following is an attempt to write about all that I know on each of the above points. I’ll keep adding stuff here in bits and pieces so its not going to be really organised. Continue reading
