Harrisburg University of Science and Technology offers graduate programs and professional development for students with a passion for improving individual and populations’ health and well-being.
Since its inception, DHGE has worked to transform the healthcare workforce by equipping professionals with the education they need to thrive in their roles and impact change. In a field that works at the intersection of science and societal demands; constant change, limitless discoveries, and evolving challenges mean that an effective workforce is only possible when given not only the fundamental knowledge to perform for their communities, but the practical and transferable skills to adjust with the times. Therefore, all DHGE’s programs are co-developed with leading subject matter experts from various backgrounds who know the healthcare industry inside and out.
“To reach their full potential, health systems need to tap into a diverse workforce that represents the society for which they are caring,” Andrew Malley, Founder and CEO of Dignity Health Global Education, commented. “Through increased access to affordable, quality education facilitated by both academic and industry professionals, as well as scholarship opportunities for those working to increase equity for underrepresented demographics, DHGE works to equip the healthcare workforce with all the tools they require to drive impactful change.”
