Sharing diverse experiences, learning and developing together, and exchanging ideas that move the industry forward.

facultyThe Executive Doctor of Science in Healthcare Leadership is a practice-oriented, academic program designed for experienced healthcare executives who currently occupy or who are preparing to enter senior leadership positions.

We provide students the opportunity to develop valuable analytical and strategic management skills and an opportunity to perfect those skills by conducting action learning assignments and applied research."
S. Robert Hernandez, DrPH, DSc
Program Director

As the scope of healthcare delivery systems becomes increasingly complex, the demands on senior leaders to possess highly sophisticated management skills are growing. Our program’s blended delivery format—distance learning with only three intensive on-campus sessions per year—allows you to obtain these skills and your DSc degree while maintaining your executive responsibilities.

The DSc program is paced so you can complete your doctoral degree in only three years: two years of coursework and one year of dissertation research.
