Application for the Doctor of Health Administration


This innovative doctoral degree program brings together health related executives with diverse backgrounds, a resident faculty with advanced management knowledge and research findings, and a visiting faculty that provides up-to-date knowledge with relevant, real-world experience. This wealth of expertise, together in an environment designed to expand knowledge, provides today's healthcare professional with the right balance between theory and practice necessary to succeed in this ever-changing world. The curriculum consists of two years of formal coursework offered in a hybrid of web-based content and extended weekend on-campus sessions (once each semester). The third year of the program will be devoted to individual, supervised doctoral project research. The purpose of the doctoral project is to give students an opportunity to work under the direction of a faculty member to conceive, implement, and analyze an applied research problem that generates new knowledge or adds a new perspective to existing knowledge. The DHA program has been uniquely designed to fill a gap in health administration education, which provides the participants with the cultural, humanistic, and professional background that the changing healthcare field demands.
