@brandonhughey Congrats on finishing program!! May I ask how you felt about workload throughout program? I recently received m acceptance and will be starting in July. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

I have not completed my DMSc yet! I am graduating from PA school this December and hope to start at Rocky Mountain University DMSc this January!

I graduated earlier this year and felt that the workload was appropriate.  I did have to set aside specific time away from the family or from work to get things done.  If you are disciplined enough to do that then you shouldn't have a problem.   

Graduated as well from DMSc. Agree with workload being appropriate. Lot of reading/writing and posting on the message board. Expect 10-15 hours of work per week I'd say.

@EMEDPA or those who have knowledge of program— 

Regarding the Lynchburg program: I completed a intensive 12 month surgical fellowship back in 2017. Does this shave off a portion of the clinical fellowship portion and in turn make the program cost less and take a shorter period of time?

Nope. You still have to pay full price. It'll shave off the time you have to submit paper work though.

      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!
