Logan University Adds Online Doctorate in Health Professions Education Degree


Logan University has announced the addition of a new doctorate degree focused on health professions education.

The online Doctorate of Health Professions Education (DHPE) focuses on advancing health care through the education process. Health professions clinical educators are in high demand and graduates of this program will be able to take their clinical expertise and translate it to the field of higher education. The program provides the opportunity for health professionals to gain knowledge in academic leadership, education technology, research, statistics, curriculum development, delivery and assessment.

"The demand for more formal health education among clinicians and other health professions educators to improve outcomes is driving the need for more specialty clinical educators—a profession that’s expected to grow over the next decade," said Kimberly Paddock-O’Reilly, DHEd, MSW, vice president of academic affairs at Logan. "We are well poised to provide this type of education as it complements our mission, vision and values as well as compliments both our existing and future degree offerings."

Beginning in January 2016, the DHPE degree program will be offered in an online format, allowing students the flexibility to complete their doctorate degree while maintaining their current employment.
