The program will emphasize global health leadership and advanced management of health care facilities and institutions. The “applied doctorate” will focus on taking the evidence available in clinical, organizational and policy areas to solve complex problems in health care, UNF said.  

“Amidst the evolving landscape of health care, UNF’s new doctor of health administration program stands as a beacon of innovation and progress,” Mei Zhao, interim dean of UNF’s Brooks College of Health, said in a news release. “This program will empower future leaders with the knowledge and skills to navigate complexities, drive transformative change and enhance the quality of health care delivery. This isn’t just a degree — it’s a commitment to shaping a healthier, more equitable tomorrow.”  

Students will train and network with internationally recognized faculty and local health care executives. The program is 48 credit hours in a hybrid format, combining 80% online coursework with 20% on-campus executive seminars on weekends.
