Jaspreet: Hospital Front Office & Billing Executive, Moolchand Hospital.
We’ve been running the first Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Healthcare for the past year. A little more than a year down the line, we’re delighted to share some success stories from the Academy. This is the first of a three part series.
Nineteen year old vivacious Jaspreet has not let her difficult life get her down. One of a family of four, she was studying in grade eleven in the government secondary school, Adarsh Nagar when her father (who owns a TV repair shop) met with an accident, and suffered a spinal injury that left him bedridden. The family found itself faced with an extended sickness and hospitalisation in a major hospital.
“Surgery cost… huge… We are financially backward and my brother earns Rs 17,000… Family is first..” says an ever smiling Jaspreet. She always wanted to be in the medical field and when her mother heard about the Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Healthcare, she visited it, and immediately loved the greenery, the infrastructure and the teachers she met. “Medical space fascinates me,” Jaspreet says. “I go home and look after my father who I am very emotionally connected to. On Sundays I like going to the Sisgunj Gurdwara and listening to the Gurbani.”
Jaspreet’s self confidence and fluency in English helped her ace two intense interviews taken by Moolchand Hospital, and receive an offer of Rs 1,68,000 per year as a CTC. She is the very first student from our first ever Hospital Front Office & Billing Executive batch from the SMART Academy, Delhi to be recruited. We are proud to see Jaspreet at the helm in Moolchand Hospital!
