A PhD, or Doctorate of Philosophy, is one of the highest degrees awarded in academia. It is a terminal degree and graduates often teach at the university level. A PhD often requires students to complete research, involving a thesis and a dissertation in order to fulfill the program requirements.

What is a PhD in Health? In a PhD program, students may explore and research different aspects of health, such as health care policy and health care administration. Students may take courses related to community health, medical practices, epidemiology and disease prevention. Because of the research aspect, students may also learn about qualitative and quantitative research methods, biostatistics and measuring tools. Once core courses and research method courses are completed, typically students begin working on their specific research project.  

Graduates of a PhD program in health typically leave the program as an expert in their subject. Many students then begin to consider how they can make an impact on global or local health care policy.

Program costs for a PhD in Health can range in price depending on length, location, stipend and scholarship availability. Some schools offer PhD students either reduced or no tuition in order to entice students to conduct important research.

Once someone is awarded a PhD in Health, many doors of opportunity open up to him or her. Some graduates may choose to enter the field of hospital administration. Another possible path for students can be teaching at the university level. Other graduates may choose to continue with their research and work at a government health institute as a patient advocate, clinical researcher, medical statistician and more.

If you’ve always wanted to further your career in health, it’s time to consider online classes. If you want to find out more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
