Message From The Dean
Welcome to the Doctorate of Healthcare Business Program (DHB). I am proud to introduce the first program in the world that closes the gap between clinical training and real-life business acumen for doctors, empowering us to be successful CEOs and community leaders.
As healthcare professionals, we all go through rigorous training, achieving clinical competency over years of professional education. It is not possible, however, to fit business training into an already demanding clinical curriculum. Recognizing the gap, we are offering this program to help doctors rise to their next level of business excellence.
Our program is taught by clinical professionals who also own and run successful businesses. These doctors come from all over the world and have backgrounds in research, publishing, innovation, team building, sales psychology, business scaling, and marketing. This unique team will be augmented by outstanding global industry leaders as guest lecturers, who will share cutting-edge knowledge in their respective fields.
The program has three tracks with three separate focuses
The Financial Track starts with personal finance, cash flow, and debt management. It provides insights to establishing different corporate business structures and building wealth through creation of intellectual property and joint ventures among different sectors.
The Business Administration track focuses on the actual operations of a successful business, covering business basics, complex sale strategies, marketing on multiple platforms, business ethics and the development of high-performance leadership. This is the track that will transform the clinician into a CEO who will be able to handle any business challenge.
The Research Track is a unique part of our Doctorate program. The doctors will review literature as well as complete an individual research project. This essential track will allow the doctoral candidate to demonstrate their aptitude to become an innovator, publish research, and contribute to our overall multidisciplinary body of knowledge.
As I look at the decade ahead, I envision three extraordinary accomplishments for this program
- We will transform the healthcare profession by raising the level of excellence in financial literacy, business management, and innovation
- We will reach beyond the walls of our practices to develop meaningful partnerships with our colleagues in various fields with the understanding that our success comes from collaboration.
- We will set the new standard for business training in healthcare education so our doctors can enjoy happy, fulfilled lives while creating their professional legacies.
