The online Doctor of Philosophy in Health Science post-professional doctoral program is designed for clinical health professionals, public health practitioners, and senior-level healthcare administrators who are able to contribute clearly defined and proficient working knowledge of clinical and non-clinical health practices. The curriculum focuses on providing students with the skills to conduct research in complex environments while focusing on the framework of health policy, giving them the necessary abilities to increase their responsibilities and function both independently and dependently in the clinical and non-clinical research environment.
