Head of Health Appointed at REGENT BUSINESS SCHOOL

The fast pace, ever evolving nature of healthcare coupled with massively overburdened health systems globally, is driving demand for bold leaders and managers, who have specialised knowledge and skills to enhance efficiency and success in this complex sector.

REGENT BUSINESS SCHOOL has appointed Dr Nivisha Parag as Head of their School for Healthcare Management Studies. The MBA in Healthcare Management at REGENT BUSINESS SCHOOL is a niche qualification, and offered EXCUSIVELY by them.

Dr Parag matriculated from Ladysmith Secondary in 2002 and achieved her MBChB at UKZN NRMSM in 2007 and thereafter completed her MBA at REGENT BUSINESS SCHOOL in 2013, post grad Emergency Medicine Specialty 2014 and most recently her Critical Care Sub Specialty in 2017. REGENT BUSINESS SCHOOL is proud to have their alumni heading up this sector of their disruptive, innovative educational institution.

Asked if she could change one thing in the health sector, Dr Parag said, “I would ensure equity of resources be providing access to care for everyone as a basic human right.”

Her role models in life are her parents, who have taught her to do everything that she pursues with discipline and sincerity. Her other role model is Oprah Winfrey because philanthropy and healthcare have common goals.

Her new role involves strategic development and continuous improvement of programs in healthcare, including the sector specific MBA in Healthcare Management. She will be teaching and leading a team of subject matter experts in content delivery; engaging with sectoral experts and professionals working in the industry to nurture a world class school that offers relevant, high quality programs tailored to the healthcare needs locally and globally.

“Inequality in South African healthcare delivery, accountability for escalating healthcare costs with no measurable increase in value, medical professional retention, closing practice gaps, the mental health of people working in this industry, the lack of outstanding leadership needed to improve health care is challenges that must be addressed.” Dr Nivisha Parag.
