Doctor Health Administration

Jillian Harvey, Ph.D., DHA Division Director 

The Doctor of Health Administration (DHA) program 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. Courses are delivered using a blended format of online coursework and in-person meetings. Students take a core curriculum focusing on leadership and management, applied research methods, health policy, and more.

This unique program gives students the opportunity to meet and learn from national health policy experts during a week-long intensive policy trip to Washington DC and culminates with an individual, supervised doctoral research project. 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.

Successful applicants possess relevant post-baccalaureate professional or master's degrees and significant practical experience in the field. All graduates obtain the same Doctor of Health Administration degree.
