The Future Of Doctoral Education In Health Administration And Policy.
Doctoral education in health administration and policy has exhibited stagnation over the past decade in terms of enrollment, graduates, curricula, etc. However, this apparent overall stagnation masks some significant changes that should accelerate in the years ahead. This paper examines the current challenges for doctoral programs in health administration and policy in terms of program orientation, program content, student profiles, and the job market. Given these challenges, predictions are made concerning future enrollment growth in various types of doctoral programs over the next ten years. Finally, recommendations concerning program orientation, program content, student profiles, and the job market are provided overall and by program type. The two most important recommendations that apply across-the-board are to update data on doctoral education and to seek foundation support for a fundamental reassessment of doctoral education for the twenty-first century.
