Orlando University currently offers three graduate degree studies – Doctor of Science in Health Promotion-Disease Prevention (i.e., Health Medicine), Doctor of Business Administration in Management, and Master of Science in Health Management – specifically as follows:
The Doctor of Science (DSc) in Health Promotion (HP) and Disease Prevention (DP) program is a professional doctoral program for integrative health promotion and disease prevention (or health medicine). Its objectives are to help health practitioners develop and advance their intellectual and practical knowledge, skills, and attitudes in health promotion and disease prevention areas at personal health, clinical health or public health level, or in combination. The program is designed for health professionals that have already achieved either a master’s degree or their first professional degree in one area of a health profession or field, and who wish to develop advanced expertise in the practice of the multifaceted, integrative health promotion and disease prevention of health sciences and clinical medicine.
The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) in Management program is a professional doctoral program that aims to prepare students to be competent chief executives or senior level managers who are able to lead an organization in the real world with high professionalism, regardless of whether they are private or public, large or small. The program intends to educate future chief executives and senior level managers in how to successfully manage an entire organization wisely and skillfully, through managing people, policy, programs, projects and related issues effectively and efficiently, in its self-developmental process and constantly changing environment.
This program prepares students who have not earned a graduate degree at the time of application, but wish to advance their own knowledge, skills and competence in the management of various areas of health or health care professions. It also prepares students who are not in the health professions, but wish to enter the health care field or learn in-depth knowledge and skills in health, disease and care management. Students will learn to master the essential knowledge and skills in health education and communications, health interventions and disease prevention, as well as care assessment or management. In addition, this masters program is also designed to serve as an intermediate degree for students who have not entered graduate studies, but plan to earn a doctorate at the University.
