Doctor of Health Science

About Program

The Doctor of Health Science (D.H.Sc.) program is a post-professional, distance-based academic doctoral program designed for clinical health professionals, public health practitioners, and senior medical administrators. The program was developed by educators and clinicians to provide evidence-based knowledge in the health sciences, including the areas of health professions education, epidemiology, global health issues, health policy, clinical professionalism and ethics, and the effective delivery of culturally-competent services to populations and individuals in the U.S. and internationally.

Through professor-driven, student-centered online course delivery, coupled with an internship, practicum, doctoral analysis, and two one-week on-campus institutes, the D.H.Sc. program challenges the student to examine the current state of health care, and to consider their role in the provision of services to their patients, clients, and the community at large.

Through examination of alternative methods of health care, community diversity, current delivery systems both national and international, and issues facing practitioners and administrators, the Doctor of Health Science curriculum is rigorous, enlightening, and designed with working professionals in mind.
