Health care management in Nepal:
Healthcare management is a new course that has been recently introduced in Nepal. Many students are unaware of this course and it has not been able to establish itself as a very prospective course for students.
75 years after the introduction of Bachelors of Healthcare Management (BHCM) in USA, it was started by Pokhara University at National Open College (NOC) for the first time in the country.
The course was introduced as a three years program and later converted to four years. The college also runs Masters Degree in health care management (MHCM) and Post graduate diploma in health care management (PGDHCM) program.  Noble college at New Baneshwor accompanies NOC and runs BHCM program under Pokhara University. These two are the only colleges to offer bachelor’s level course on Health Care Management, while PGDHCM and MHCM are run by NOC alone. 
 According to pioneers of this field, international standard course is offered at a very low cost inside the country. The Nepalese hospitals and Medical institutions offer trainings for BHCM students free of cost. That, too, is one of the reasons for reduced cost of the degree. Bachelor’s degree in health care management (BHCM) can be opted by 10+2 passed students from any stream – science, management or humanities.  The cost for the degree is around sixty thousand rupees per year in NOC while Noble Academy charges around sixty-nine thousand for the same. PGDHCM is a one year course for bachelor graduates from any stream who want to join master’s level in the subject. It costs around one hundred thousand for completing PGDHCM. Similarly, MHCM is a two years course available for the BHCM, BAMS, PGDHCM and MBBS students.
The demand for health care managers and administrators is rising due to increasing number of hospitals, nursing homes, Medical firms, INGOS & NGOS inside the country. Most of the Nepalese healthcare services are managed by doctors and graduates other than Health Care Management. This, however, is not their area of specialization. Being involved in the managerial works, their work often faces diversion. And this will be checked only when courses as these produce graduates and postgraduates with sufficient knowledge and expertise to manage the healthcare services. This course definitely has the potential to open door to lots of opportunities for its graduates and postgraduates. For want of expert health care managers and administrators, the hospitals and nursing homes in Nepal has been witnessing a number of difficulties. And BHCM program available in the country can play an important role in addressing the problems to some extent.
