Our DHSc in Population Health is designed for working professionals who are determined to transform the healthcare system. This cohort-based program is small, interactive and focused on creating a community of practice among the participants as they develop their knowledge and skills.
This 3-year cohort-based program combines the best of online content delivery, while also providing students with intensive mentoring, coaching and soft skills practice in face-to-face sessions with some of the best and brightest minds from across the country.
Students begin in Fall and will complete the program in Summer In of the third year.
Online courses are offered asynchronously using best practices and interactive learning.
Program requirements include two in-person residencies (spring and fall) in each year. They are offered over the course of 4 days (bridging a weekend) on Jefferson's Center City campus in Philadelphia.
The in-person residency programs allow students to receive personalized attention and mentoring from faculty - an ideal opportunity to develop dissertation proposals, receive career coaching and build their professional network of contacts. There are also sessions devoted to career planning, board governance, and opportunities to interact with industry experts.
