Description:The Diploma in Health Services Administration (DHSA) program is designed to prepare students for a career in healthcare at the managerial level. It meets the needs of students interested in health services administration and of those currently employed in the healthcare sector in a managerial capacity in health facilities, and employees in community health, long-term care, primary care, multi-service centres, and community health boards.

The program provides a conceptual background for the increasingly complex managerial tasks performed in health institutions, agencies, and health-related government departments. Every effort is made to balance political, social, economic, cultural, medical, and ethical approaches to understanding the healthcare delivery system with those of the management sciences. All students must observe the University and Academic Regulations described in the calendar.
