How the DHA Schedule Works

How the DHA Schedule Works

Curriculum Delivery
The D.H.A. degree program is a hybrid of In-person or Virtual Synchronous sessions and distanced education learning designed for busy working professionals.  The LECOM Doctor of Healthcare Administration degree is a three-year, 72 credit hour program. Students meet periodically either on-campus in Bradenton Florida or via scheduled video conferences.  Students move through the program together as a cohort, taking the same classes, which can vary from cohort to cohort as the program evolves to continue to meet current healthcare industry requirements. The first two years of the program are predominantly core course and research skills development designed to help focus candidate’s on their dissertation requirements and final course work. New computer applications and systems solutions are learned and applied to assist with advanced complex problem solving skills.  Individual courses are delivered with diverse teaching methodologies driven by competency achievement and experimental application. The robust on-line learning platform is available to DHA students 24/7 and delivers high quality presentations, forum discussions, teamwork activities and direct linkage to each faculty member.   Student coursework, assignments and examinations, both synchronous and distance education are submitted electronically within each course on the LECOM Learning Management System, access to which is limited by a unique usernames and password.

Cohorts
There is one cohort for enrollment starting in July each year. Cohorts have been designed for professionals who seek a DHA degree while continuing full-time careers.
