ATSU’s Doctor of Health Administration program helping student stand out, take next career step

A.T. Still University-College of Graduate Health Studies (ATSU-CGHS) Doctor of Health Administration program student Cierra Barry, MHA, wanted to take the next step in her career and stand out from her peers.

She believes ATSU-CGHS’ Doctor of Health Administration program is the answer to both goals.

“I have been able to learn and grow in healthcare and understand a lot more,” she said. “Knowledge is power.”

The Doctor of Health Administration (DHA) degree program at ATSU-CGHS prepares health professionals ready to step into leadership roles to improve and influence healthcare administration systems. With coursework completed 100 percent online, future innovative leaders and problem solvers of the healthcare industry can earn their DHA degree wherever they are and advance their careers.

ATSU-CGHS’ respected DHA program’s curriculum blends the theoretical with the practical, offering graduates the holistic knowledge needed to consider healthcare systems built for the whole person. With coursework grounded in extensive research, this online DHA program builds up-to-date knowledge in healthcare policy and law, organizational theory, strategic planning, healthcare financing, health information systems, quantitative and qualitative research methods, and more. ATSU-CGHS’ DHA degree is built on a curriculum that offers a challenging and interdisciplinary experience for graduates to achieve intellectual and professional advancement.

Barry said time management is an important factor in being able to balance the demands of the program with those of work and life, but it is doable. Faculty members are also there to provide plenty of support, assisting with questions whenever she needs.

“I love having great communication,” she said.

Barry expects to complete the program this fall.

“I have truly enjoyed my time at ATSU and recommend it to anyone looking to further their education,” she said.
