The Doctor of Behavioral Health program with a concentration in management focuses exclusively on management and behavioral care in the integrated primary care environment. This program concentration is designed to designate students with additional management didactics, training, and experience, thereby establishing their potential for leadership roles in an evolving healthcare marketplace.

The DBH management concentration is an 84–credit doctoral degree (students receive 30–credits towards the program based on their master’s degree) offered through ASU Online that prepares graduates to be future leaders in integrated care. The curriculum includes ASU Online courses that include synchronous (live) chat with instructors and students, internship training with live streaming video consultation with experts in the field, and a capstone research project that includes a business plan specific to the students’ professional career interests.
