The doctorate program in health policy and health education provides health professionals with the edge they need through challenging coursework and relevant work experience. D’Youville’s curricular design offers concentrations in health policy (for those preparing for management and leadership positions in the health care system) and in health education (for those preparing for college teaching or institutional education in health fields).
All students are provided extensive preparation in research methods and analysis, organizational behavior, communications, law and policy, and finance. With an Ed.D. in health policy and health education from D’Youville, students will be prepared to meet the increasing demand among colleges, health care and government institutions for doctoral-prepared personnel who can provide leadership in policy formation, problem-solving and teaching.
The curriculum involves 45 hours of advanced graduate work beyond the professional master’s degree in a health related field. It comprises 13 courses including dissertation research, writing and defense.
