The MBA in Healthcare Management at Regent Business School is a niche qualification, offered exclusively by them.

Dr Parag matriculated from Ladysmith Secondary in 2002 and achieved her MBChB at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) UKZN NRMS in 2007 and thereafter completed her MBA at Regent, post grad Emergency Medicine Specialty 2014 and most recently her Critical Care Sub-Specialty in 2017.

Her new role involves strategic development and continuous improvement of programs in healthcare, including the sector specific MBA in Healthcare Management.
