How the DHA Schedule Works

How the DHA Schedule Works

Curriculum Delivery
The D.H.A. degree program will be a hybrid of face-to-face 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 either on-campus in Bradenton Florida or via video conference for ten (10), two (2) day sessions per year.  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. The final year is focused on the candidate’s dissertation requirements and final course work. Individual course 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 for assignments and examinations for both the in-person sessions 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 to work full-time.
