About the DrPH Doctoral Study

A doctoral study is a formal manuscript written on applied public health research. Walden doctoral studies consist of four sections:

  • Section 1: Foundation of the Study and Literature Review,
  • Section 2: Research Design and Data Collection,
  • Section 3: Presentation of the Results and Findings, and
  • Section 4: Application to Professional Practice and Implications for Social Change.

You can access additional information on the Doctor of Public Health doctoral study and process from the Doctor of Public Health page on Student Research Administration tab of the Center for Research Quality website. Access samples of published doctoral studies through the Walden library website under Databases. For proposal or doctoral study APA or writing-related questions, contact editor@waldenu.edu.
