Finished my MPH (100% online with no residency requirement). Highly recommend the program. Once I finished the MPH I started the DHED, but decided I wanted to finish a PhD online and transferred to NCU. What a horrible mistake. No comparison in the quality.

I recently graduated from A.T. Still University with a Doctor of Health Science (DHSc.) degree. I ended up completing the program in only two years. It's so difficult to do that that ATSU has decided not to let students complete it in anything less than three years anymore. That's a good move as there was a pretty high attrition rate among the folks attempting to do the program in two.

I rate this among the absolute best of my academic experiences, and this is coming from someone with multiple master's degrees, including Ivy League experience. This program is by no means a cake-wake. It requires a serious commitment in time and effort--but it is well worth it. I took away more knowledge about the field of healthcare in two years than I'd manage to accrue in 25 years+ in the field. I have a ton of more tools to use in practical operational environments than I'd had before.

The unique and most important discriminator about this program is that it invites all manner of allied health professionals into a commonly shared laboratory of learning. The result is that each student is exposed to perspectives outside his or her occupational silo. It's an amazingly enriching experience that I believe (as it grows) will help to foster cooperation and collaboration among otherwise disparate professionals who should be working for a common cause--the delivery of quality healthcare.

Can't say enough about the program director, administrative staff, or the professors and instructors. Superb in every respect. I would stack this program against anything out there right now, distance or traditional. I predict ATSU will emerge as one of the Nation's leaders in graduate medical education in just a few short years.

I have to commend the faculty of the DHSc program for their commitment to building a challenging and in-depth program.

The coursework is certainly time consuming. It will take approximately 15 hours of study and participation time for each class each week. The support tools like the Writing Center and Library are easily accessed and the staff will gladly help you through the program.

The diversity of professionals in the program leads to high levels of discussion. There are PAs, RNs, DDSs, PhDs, Administrators, CEOs, etc. in the program with me.

Overall, the richness of the student population, the applied research perspective of the curriculum and the amazing faculty make it a wonderful value and investment in your future.

The doctoral program for health sciences is an excellent program. The Arizona School of Health Sciences is student focused and student friendly. The faculty are always willing to answer any questions that student have.

The school has an excellent writing center which students are encouraged to use prior to submitting their assignments. There is also an excellent library PubMed. It has a lot of information which students can access when doing their assignments. If a student can not access an article, the librian has ways to obtain it.

The work is assinged in advanced in order for it to be done and submitted timely. So far I have not had any problems.

I would recommend anyone interested in persuing his or her doctoral studies in health science to go to A.T. Still University.

Respectfully, Doctoral Student in the Health Science Program

I am pleased overall with the program. The most frustrating part was to find two PhDs/MDs to volunteer on my dissertation committee. I have had good experiences with several faculty members. I have not had that great of an experience with the academic coordinator and financial aid personnel...URGH. Overall, the good outweighs the bad so do your research and think carefully. Also, the chair of the health education program is helpful, but she can be a bit tough.

p.s., Do a google search for the degree title and see what it yields "DHEd". You will find it difficulty to determine what graduates are actually doing, but then again, the program is not more than a few years old.

I received my doctorate in health education from AT Still University. Overall I am very happy with the experience that I had there. It took me just under 3 years to complete my degree - dissertation and all. It was frustrating to find professors to review my dissertation, but it is an essential process. I have been able to use my degree by teaching online for other colleges which is what I wanted to be able to do. I found most professors to be very helpful and want you to succeed. I would recommend this program.

Would You Recommend This College?

I was really excited about being a part of this program. Health education is my passion and was really excited about the university rich history of osteopathic medicine. Needlessly to say this particular School of Health Mangagement does not compare to the standards of its other programs. It is very difficult to communicate with someone voice mails, emails, and online discussion boards are made avaiable. The program chair that was assigned to me was not accessible it took about a week for him to respond to my emails when I had questions about my dissertation committee members the response was very vague. Beaware you are responsible for "finding" two phD holders of degrees to serve on your committee at the very beginning of the process. When you do beware that they must meet the approval of the Department Chair and they do not provide any options if you don't have or know any one that meet their needs. It has been an awful and frustrating experience no support which is needed more in the online format.

Masters in Public Health Professor

Would You Recommend This College?

I have been teaching courses in the Master's in Public Health program in ATSU's School of Health Management [SHM] for over 2 years.

Prior to that I taught for 6 years at 5 other Online Universities. ATSU is by far the best school - because they have students who are professionals and come to class prepared. They take part in discussions and share from their expertise.

Student papers are checked for plagiarism, and by far I have seen fewer cases of copy/paste at ATSU thsn any other college. Why? Because ATSU takes plagiarism seriously, and require that students do their own work. As a result, students learn and grow in this field.

As an instructor I add much to the curiculum with public health current events - which occur each day from H1NI updates to climate change reports. This keeps students up-to date and informed.

I send out private emails to students 5-10 times a week - to help students stay on track. I provide formative feedback on weekly papers before they are turned for a final grade.

I know my colleagues do the same. We work long hours to inform our students about the best practices in public health.

Learned alot

Would You Recommend This College?

I am attending online for the DHSc program. This is only the 2nd program in the country for that program, offered online. It seems like its a relatively new program so there are a few kinks but nothing that has been too bad. I think my biggest problem was that I didn't receive my IT password and had a hard time getting another one issued. It was resolved within a week.

My biggest concern was accreditation, which doesn't seem to be a problem. I was pleased that each program is accredited by the respective professional organization.

I'm only in my 2nd class and so far it's been pretty good. There's not a ton of interaction from the profs but the other students in the program are great. Most of the discussion is amongst peers. I went into the program with the assumption that I would get out of it what I am putting into it and thus far feel like I have learned alot.
