President's Message

On behalf of IIHMRU Family, I am very happy to extend a very heartiest and warm welcome to our IIHMR University. We are the top research University in healthcare management research in India.

It is indeed my privilege to lead the IIHMR University, Jaipur. We are a community of individuals who bring together expertise from a wide variety of areas to produce new knowledge, influential ideas, and practical solutions to significant challenges in the health, pharma, and development sector. Over the past thirty-five years, IIHMR has carved a niche for itself among management institutions, both in India and abroad. In its long journey building around a culture of action-oriented research, the University has worked collaboratively with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, USA as well as international agencies like the World Health Organization (WHO), World Bank, United Nations(UN), and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in a range of research, training, and education activities.

As the President of this University, it has been my tremendous privilege to witness unbridled success in all streams, be it in achieving academic excellence, expansion of faculty members, or the placement of our students in world-class organizations. The valuable contribution of our top-class faculty, experienced School Deans towards the generation of new knowledge, their dedication to providing par excellence learning eco-system, delivery of quality teaching, thoughtful mentoring ensure the future success of our students.

The exceptional vision of our Founder Trustee Dr. Ashok Agarwal, and our Chairman Dr. S.D. Gupta and their outstanding leadership have helped the University to implement the strategic agenda focused on realizing the ambitious goals. The guidance provided by them has laid down the roadmap of comprehensive initiatives aiming at elevating every aspect of the University. In the last 35 years, IIHMR has transformed from a health and hospital management research institution to a multidisciplinary and research focussed University, engaged in wide range of programs, executive education, and diversified research.

We provide a thriving intellectual environment for our students. The faculty at IIHMR brings tremendous research strength and a wide variety of industry and government experience across diverse sectoral and functional domains. Our vibrant network of 4000+ alumni who, in turn, mentoring our current students, innovative teaching pedagogy embedded with field and experiential learning, and Individual development plan for every student makes us class apart. IIHMR is committed to becoming an internationally acclaimed healthcare research University with a global outlook grounded in Indian Ethos. We benchmark our programs and processes with the best in class and continue to outperform our targets. For us, excellence is just an ongoing journey, not a destination

This is a crucial moment of the corona pandemic in India and around the world, and we at IIHMR University have an imperative to both serve and lead. I look forward to working together with our faculty, students, staff, alumni, friends, and all stakeholders to harness the energy and dedication that drives every member of our community @ IIHMR University. Together we will propel the University’s collective work to confront, understand, and solve all the major public health challenges we all face.

On behalf of the IIHMR family, I take this opportunity to invite and welcome all of you and specially our young, bright minds who are eager to explore new vistas of knowledge and become part of this transformational journey. All the best!

Dr. Pankaj Gupta
