Professional Doctorates in Health

Our professional doctorates are designed for those working in the health sector to deliver original research that improves health outcomes.

What to expect

In your first two years (Part 1) you will complete part time coursework that lays the foundation for your research and thesis (Part 2). In addition to self-directed study and online forum, learning will take place in block days of seminar, workshops, and guest lectures so you can fit study with your work commitments.

The professional doctorates are taught at the Wellington Regional Hospital Campus, where you will be supported by experts at the forefront of research.

You will move through the programme with a cohort of other health practitioners, managers and leaders, so you can share knowledge and strengthen relationships in the health sector.
