The Executive Doctoral program is intended for healthcare executives who are seeking to engage in a rigorous course of study that will also permit them to retain their demanding work and life responsibilities. D.Sc. students are interested in continuing a practice-focused career, as opposed to the academic career sought by most Ph.D. students.
Qualified applicants will preferably have, a master's degree in health administration; health informatics; business administration; or a related management/administration field. Degree(s) must be from an accredited institution. In addition, qualified applicants will have a minimum of five years of mid– to senior-level managerial experience in health management.
As of January 2010, the UAB Graduate School has approved a waiver of the GRE/GMAT requirement for all applicants to the Executive Doctoral Program in Administration-Health Services. Admission requirements to the Residential PhD Program are not affected by this change.
International students must submit recent scores for the TOEFL exam.
