Hello folks! I am curious as to what all of your experiences are w/ healthcare administration degrees (masters, doctorates, etc) for PAs. I am planning to start an MHA or one of the DMSc degrees available to PAs within the next few years. Now, I know that is not to say I really HAVE to have another degree to work my way into administration roles in the future, but I believe it will make me more competitive when I am up against MBAs, MHAs, MDs and RNs w/ advanced admin degrees. I have been looking at some of the DMSc degrees that are popping up (Rocky Mountain, Lynchburg) and am interested how they compaire for admin roles vs the tried-and-true MHA or MBA. Do any of you have any of these degrees, and how are you utilized? Are you finding yourself competitive when seeking out admin roles? Any recommendations of programs? TIA!
Hello folks, Long time browser and occasional poster on the forum. I just finished PA school and lined up a job to start after passing my boards. During some of my interviews many of the managers put on display their hospital affiliations with schools that offer MBA programs "free" if providers commit to working for an additional 24 months. It got me thinking. What other degrees are advantageous to PAs after getting their masters? Obviously it depends on what you want to go into (owning your own practice Vs. Education Vs. Healthcare reform) but I'm just curious to hear from people who returned to school for an extra "piece of paper." How has it changed your career? Was it worth it? Who would you recommend to anyone else? BelgianPA
