It is good that you are concerned about your career choice right after 10+2. This is the best time to select your career option as Hospital Management and Administration. You must go for a bachelor’s degree in Hospital Administration (BHA). The cut-off admission marks for this section is 50% in 10+2 in most colleges in India so you must not worry about getting an admission. The top colleges, like ASCI, Hinduja Institute of Healthcare Management, Apollo Institute of Hospital Administration conduct their entrance exams and have their respective criteria for selection. For more details you can check their websites to stay update with the admission procedures and requisites. There are private colleges too that offer these course and admission is not that difficult in them. You need to have Biology at the 10+2 level to opt for BHA.

To pursue a master’s degree in Hospital Administration, you can be a graduate from any stream. Even non-medical students can apply for this career. There are institutes that offer certificate and diploma courses in hospital management but if you want to begin now, BHA is the best option for you with a lot of job prospects ahead given that India is growing in development of hospitals and rehabilitation centres everywhere. The Indian Society of Health Administrators (ISHA) provides a one-year distance learning course in hospital administration and nursing administration.
