Thomas Jefferson University College of Population Health Doctor of Health Science
Graduates of the King’s College Master of Science in Healthcare Administration (MHA) program can continue their education and earn a Doctor of Health Science (DHSc) in Population Health Management from the Thomas Jefferson University College of Population Health (JCPH).
JCPH provides priority admission, with a tuition discount, of two seats each academic year to King’s College students who complete the MHA program with a GPA of 3.3 or better, have at least five years of relevant work experience, and meet the JCPH admission requirements.
Unlike a Ph.D., where the focus is on research, a DHSc focuses on practical applications, providing students with the knowledge to further their role as healthcare leaders. The DHSc is a 52-credit online, small cohort-based program. It connects students with world-class faculty and leaders in population health and healthcare leadership to take a deeper dive into the roles of administrators, leaders, and clinicians in addressing the complex health needs of our communities.
Students begin the cohort in the fall semester and complete the program in the summer of the third year. The program also includes two in-person residencies each year.
