Hi guys! I am not sure if this is the place to post about this topic but I am currently a MPH candidate with one more year left until graduation. I love public health but lately I have realized that I have a greater passion for Health Science. My institution MCPHS University located in Boston, MA offers a D.H.Sc. program and I wanted to apply. It sounds like a fairly new doctorates because when I google it I do not find much information.

Does anyone have more information on this degree? I am currently a research assistant with hopes of becoming maybe a project manager for a research area in health science or possibly a research associate. My BS is in Biology and my MPH is community health so I am wondering if this is a good choice for advancing in my career.
