11th International Conference on Health Care Systems and Global Business Issues (02 Jan,2018)

11th International Conference on Health Care Systems and Global Business Issues

The Eleventh International Conference on Healthcare Systems and Global Business Issues will be held at the beautiful campus of IMS Unison University, Dehradun, India from January 2-3, 2018. This is only the third institution in India where this international conference will be held. 

Dehradun is a very historic town located at the foothills of the Himalayas and the IMS Unison University is located only about 20 Km. from Mussoorie, a popular tourist destination in India.

Purpose of the Conference:

This conference provides an excellent avenue for academicians, research scholars, students, and practitioners to present papers as well as to learn from presentations in a very friendly environment. Since its inception, another purpose of the conference is to highlight a specific educational institution, and hence the conference is spearheaded by a host sponsoring institution.

In order to encourage greater participation, the conference has deliberately kept the registration fees low and is probably one of the best valued conferences for participants as compared to similar the business administration and healthcare administration related conferences. All conference attendees are required to register for the conference. The conference has a rich history of fostering mutually beneficial collegiality among academicians, research scholars, students, and industry leaders. The long term partnership and friendship that this conference has created among participants over the past decade has been invaluable.

The conference will:

  • Give an opportunity for academicians, research scholars, students, and practitioners from the fields of business administration, healthcare administration, and law (such as: medicine, pharmacy, information management, law, sociology, psychology, education, etc.), to exchange research, thoughts, and ideas pertaining to these areas with a global perspective;

  • Help participants to enhance their knowledge in a global sense as well as to learn and understand the various concepts and frameworks that may work in one environment while miserably fail in another while adopting the contemporary issues in business management and healthcare administration.

  • To consider the pedagogy for teaching the issues of business and healthcare administration. Faculty, practitioners, and/or students from USA, India, to name a few countries are already confirmed to participate in the conference and they will provide greater insights and different perspectives of this rapidly growing field.

  • Provide institutions interested in developing healthcare administration programs an opportunity to interact with several current and past healthcare administration program directors and department chairs.

  • Provide an opportunity to network with colleagues from several countries, which can lead to a partnership in future for research and educational endeavours.

  • Gain insights of how authors in various business and healthcare disciplines enhance their skills to generate publishable articles.

Conference - Journal Partnership

Conference participants will get an opportunity to interact with Editors or editorial board members of several international journals.
