Health care is a thriving field, with a constant demand for qualified, educated professionals—including on an administrative and policy level. With a health services PhD, you could find yourself playing a leading role in our evolving health system, whether as a researcher, analyst, or policy strategist.

Learn to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare policy, broaden your knowledge of healthcare ethics and law, and engage in scientific inquiry to advance research and practice in health services. With a health services PhD, you can prepare to meet the challenges of today’s healthcare system and lead and inform dialogue about key health services issues.

“If you’re not sure what you can do with a PhD in health services, take a look around and listen to the news,” says Dr. Valerie Warner-Collins, a graduate of Walden’s online PhD in Health Services program. “We need people who’re going to come along with a new level of learning and take health care from where it is into the future. And that’s us.”
