"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."
Dr. Cecil B. Drain
Professor and Dean
School of Allied Health Professions
"This program is unique in its interdisciplinary and hybrid design. It broadens the range of diverse and talented students
to whom doctoral education is available, enabling a greater number to pursue Ph.D. degrees without interrupting
careers or uprooting families. I hope to foster continued program innovations and interdisciplinary opportunities
and sustain the recruitment and retention of these high-quality students who aspire to become the researchers, teachers
and administrators so critically needed in the health-related sciences."
Dr. Paula K. Kupstas
Director, Doctoral Program in Health Related Sciences
