The PhD program at UMass Medical School’s Graduate School of Nursing is designed for students who are interested in advancing nursing care and improving health outcomes. The majority of our students are employed nurses who want to continue working as educators or clinicians while in a PhD program; thus, we have created a program that caters to this need.
