Doctoral Project Proposal
The doctoral project proposal should be developed over the second year of course work. After successful completion of the Comprehensive Examination, the proposal must be formally presented to the doctoral candidate’s project committee for approval. Only after formal approval can work proceed with the project.
Each student in the executive Doctor of Health Administration (DHA) will be required to complete a major study analyzing a management or policy issue in the health care field. The doctoral project will be an applied management study in an actual organization or subject area as contrasted with a theoretical research project required in most Ph.D. programs.
