    Pacific University of Oregon offers a 100% online DHSc for practitioners and healthcare managers. The program requires an applied project and practicum. If you want to see the curriculum, refer to the DMSc program. The two programs are the same, except the DMSc is only for physician assistants.

    Seems like a better deal to VUL's program in terms of curriculum. However, it costs twice as much. If we should look at US News Ranking, this school is ranked 187 nationally. I think it's interesting that the same curriculum leads to the DMS. and the DHSc. I haven't seen anything like that.

    An interesting program contains an applied program which is in three parts over three terms and a clinical practicum also three parts over three terms.

    I've seen at least one program that led to an LLM or an MS in Law (or something like that) depending on whether the student had a first degree in law. But yeah, it's uncommon.

    Alabama has one of those. LL.M if you have a JD, J.M. If you do not.

    Hofstra has a similar one: LLM if you have a JD, otherwise, MA.
