ATSU’s Doctor of Health Administration faculty, staff, provide support when students need it most

There are a lot of reasons not to do something. When it comes to advancing education and careers through online degree programs, prospective students need to closely examine things like cost and time in order to make the right choice for themselves. 

Despite the best planning, though, the unexpected can happen, and then what? A.T. Still University-College of Graduate Health Studies (ATSU-CGHS) Doctor of Health Administration student Henry Allen Cooley Jr., MS, said when things became difficult in his personal life, his ATSU-CGHS program gave him the support he needed.

“Staff went out of their way to assist me when I was having a crisis,” Cooley said. “They kept me in the program and found solutions for my issues.”

The Doctor of Health Administration degree program at ATSU prepares health professionals to become innovative leaders and problem solvers within the healthcare industry. By blending the theoretical with the practical, the coursework of this advanced degree program provides students with the holistic knowledge needed to transition into careers that improve and influence healthcare administration systems.

Cooley entered the Doctor of Health Administration to advance his knowledge and stay abreast of current healthcare happenings, and enjoys the flexibility provided by an online program. He’s also received great support from his family to balance work, life, and the program.

“My family is very supportive and allows me the time I need in the evenings and on the weekends,” he said. “I plan on teaching as I near retirement and the degree will give me that opportunity.”
