I am a behavior analyst, and always believed that behavior analysis could improve the quality of life of so many people; but the way ABA services are delivered nowadays, one behavior analyst cannot reach many people. The healthcare landscape is changing and integration is a perfect venue to reach more people. I had already worked in a hospital setting and knew that my training was not enough to navigate the changing systems. The DBH offers training in relevant subjects such as population health management, health equity, legal issues and ethics in healthcare, and entrepreneurship. The breadth and variety of the courses will prepare me to face any challenges I may encounter.
