Our Students

“[RMUoHP] offers exactly what I was looking for in a doctoral program. This long distance education model allowed me to continue working and not disrupt my family life as a wife and mother. The quality of the faculty is tops. Even with my board certification credentials prior to starting the program, the intensity of the core and specialty classes was challenging and rewarding. I wanted the recognition a DSc degree can afford me and RMUoHP helped me achieve it.”
