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!
Those of you who have completed a doctorate program such as the ones offered by Nova Southeastern or ATSU... What are you doing now? Are you still practicing clinically? Have you gone into academia? Administration? Are you working for the government or an NGO? How are your new paychecks? What do you enjoy about your new career that you wouldn't have otherwise been able to achieve? Realizing that, as much as I love the OR, I won't be able to operate forever, I'm considering a couple of these programs in hopes of increasing my earnings potential and opening up a few different paths for the future. Your thoughts?
