Doctor of Health Administration Programs
The College of Health Professions (CHP) offers three unique, doctoral-level programs in health administration. Each is designed to allow ambitious health care professionals to turn their clinical or administrative experiences into opportunities to teach, shape public policy and/or lead complex organizations. Successful applicants will posses relevant Masters degrees and at least five years of practical experience in the field.
The world of health care is complex, and ever-changing, and will benefit from individuals who marry their deep learning with a desire to influence others. Candidates in the DHA-Executive program have achieved senior-level administrative positions, and now seek the next level of learning. Our graduates generally intend to turn their doctoral degrees into higher education faculty positions, into leadership roles in health care advocacy, or into the highest levels of health care administration. Courses are offered in executive format to allow students to combine their professional and academic lives. Required on-campus sessions are held one long weekend per semester.
