Center for Doctoral Studies and Research

The Center for Doctoral Studies and Research (CDSR) is home to the University’s doctoral programs in Educational Leadership, Health Professions Education, and Health Administration. It also includes the MS and graduate certificate in Health Services Administration and the graduate certificate in Long Term Care Administration. Co-location of these programs provides opportunities for synergy and collaboration in learning, research, and scholarship. 

In addition to academic programming, the CDSR provides support to faculty and students pursuing research and scholarship, particularly related to projects that directly impact our community. Initiatives and events within the CDSR aim to build connections between faculty, between faculty and students, and between the University and community on research, scholarship, and service-learning projects. 

The CDSR celebrates the faculty and student research and scholarship through annual events and competitions showcasing D’Youville affiliated work.  With increased synergy, collaboration, and recognition, the CDSR aims to increase the quality of work produced by doctoral students and faculty.
