Doctor of Health Administration New Student Info

Welcome to the Department of Healthcare Leadership and Management at MUSC. We are excited to be part of your educational and professional growth!

The Doctor of Health Administration (DHA) program is lockstep in nature (meaning courses are taken in a prescribed sequence) and you will be registered for your courses administratively each semester.

MUSC new student orientation will be held virtually. In addition, there may be other optional orientation sessions scheduled periodically prior to the start of classes. 2022 - 2023 academic calendars are being finalized and orientation dates will be shared soon. The agenda for your virtual sessions will be provided to you directly by your Student Services Coordinator.

DHA on-campus sessions are held in Charleston at the College of Health Professions. Attendance is required and students should make travel and hotel arrangements accordingly. Details will be provided by the program prior to the start of the semester. Future on-campus sessions have been assigned dates that can be found in the DHA academic calendar and curriculum schedule included in your admission packet. 

We wish you the best as you begin your studies here at MUSC and look forward to working with you. Please let us know if you have any questions.

New Student Information

As the next academic year approaches new students will have their MUSC student accounts (NetIDs) assigned and will be sent notification & activation instructions. Once this has occurred you will access the online CHP Fall Orientation, a guide through many new students "to dos".  Your student services coordinator will send you instructions regarding access to the CHP Fall Orientation.

MUSC New Student Orientation (Virtual): TBD
