  • Objectives
    The Diploma in Health Services Administration (DHSA) program is designed to prepare students for a career in health care at the managerial level. It meets the needs of students interested in health services administration and of those currently employed in the health care sector in a managerial capacity, particularly, middle managers in medium and large institutions, administrators in small facilities, and employees in community health, long-term care, primary care, multi-service centres, and community health boards. The program provides a conceptual background for the increasingly complex managerial tasks performed in health institutions, agencies, and health-related government departments. Every effort is made to balance political, social, economic, cultural, medical, and ethical approaches to understanding the health care delivery system with those of the management sciences.
