Why The Institute?

Health care and its management are one of the fastest growing sectors, both in India and globally. The future of SIHS is closely linked to the future of the health care sector in India. We therefore share the vision of burgeoning growth in the near future. Similarly the need for world class academic institutions is growing to keep pace with the demands of the expanding economies of the country.

With its pioneering approach to meeting society's demands, the Symbiosis International University (SIU) has shifted to a new 300-acre campus at Lavale on the outskirts of Pune City.

SIU is in the process of setting up Symbiosis Super Speciality Hospital & Research Centre, which will have a Centre of Excellence in Minimal Access & Robotic Surgery with a focus on education and training research. There would also be a general hospital medical college Paramedic Training Institute,a School for Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM), a Health Technology Park, a Bio-Medical Cluster, etc. all contributing to a complete new world of healthcare.

Message from the Dean

Innovation and a passion for excellence has now become a second nature for all of us at Symbiosis. These two derivatives well justify the establishment of the Symbiosis Institute of Health Sciences (SIHS).

Symbiosis has a proven track record in the field of education with management education being its flagship. With changing times, Symbiosis diversified into other education arenas like computers, law, information technology, Geo-informatics, etc. Health Sciences are yet another need based domain which Symbiosis has tapped. Given the paradigm shift which the health care sector is experiencing, Health Sciences probably represent the most ideal field for Symbiosis to innovate. The ample opportunities which this field presents by way of research further testifies to the significance of this department.

With its objective of bringing together professionals from diverse disciplines to design contemporary need based academic programmes pertinent to the health care sector, I am sure SIHS is ideally poised to pursue this mission of striving for excellence in the field of Health Sciences which is important to one and all.

The excellent infrastructure, experienced faculty and other facilities are all here to harness your potential and help you to become a vital link in the health care sector.
