DHA - Health Care Leadership
Advance your knowledge of leadership theories, concepts, and techniques to produce positive and innovative organizational outcomes, meet organizational goals and objectives, and support top organizational performance. The curriculum, developed around the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL) Competency Model™, emphasizes practice-based research and collaborative experiences. The Health Care Leadership specialization focuses on such topics as contemporary leadership roles, strategic vision and planning, and evidence-based leadership in health care, in addition to core courses covering advanced health administration concepts and practices. An assessment at the beginning of your program helps you focus on skills you can strengthen or build on to improve your success as a health care administrator. You will participate in field experiences instead of a comprehensive examination, giving you the opportunity to apply your newly gained knowledge in a professional health care setting. You will also complete an action dissertation project using participatory research and reflective study to make a practical, evidence-based improvement in your organization or community. Convenient electronic textbooks lower costs and provide immediate access to course materials. People who choose this specialization are often pursuing leadership positions in the health care industry.
