GW Launches Doctor of Health Sciences Program in Leadership in Clinical Practice and Education

A new Doctor of Health Sciences Program in Leadership in Clinical Practice and Education offered by the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) promises to enhance competencies and leadership skills in both education and clinical practice.

The program “addresses the complexity of the current practice environment, as well as the need for increased credentialing of health care educators,” said Joyce Maring, EdD, DPT, program director and chair and associate professor in the Department of Health, Human Function, and Rehabilitation Sciences at SMHS.

The program prepares professionals from a range of practice areas who seek to build competencies in advanced professional leadership, whether that be in the clinical or academic environment.
