"This internet-based program is one of the first of its kind in the United States, unique in its joining of so many health related disciplines. With the increasing complexity of health care, there is a critical need for professionals with a broad spectrum of information in multiple fields."

"Our program equips talented and diverse students for success in research, teaching and administration. Its hybrid design blends distance-based and traditional classroom experiences so students don't have to interrupt careers or move families to pursue doctoral education. Outstanding faculty from the school's nine departments enhance the interdisciplinary experience through excellence in teaching, research, and advising"
