This program blends theory with research methodology, providing students with the chance to contribute new knowledge to an area of interest. This could include subjects such as policy development, public health, high-level management, or informatics. PhD in Health Care Administration programs prepares students to seek positions as an academic researcher or professor. For an alternative to a dissertation, students can enroll in the Option 2-degree program, the DOCTOR OF HEALTH CARE ADMINISTRATION, which focuses on the application of knowledge to solve professional challenges. A capstone culminates the program.
