Doctoral education varies according to how students that graduate from a particular program are prepared for various type of careers. PhD programs principally work to develop researchers; researchers produce and disseminate new knowledge in a given area of expertise. This manuscript looks specifically at a PhD program designed to produce researchers in healthcare strategic management. This program is based in a business school and builds on general business principles to produce strategists that do research in the healthcare context. The business school program (type B) will be analyzed according to the areas (or potential areas) of research done by its graduates. The different areas are shown in a table where one axis is research content (i.e., specifically what the functional area of research is) and the other axis is publication outlet (i.e., what journal the research is disseminated in). Advantages of the type B program are compared to advantages of a PhD program based in a healthcare administration or healthcare management school (type H program) in terms of publications in these different areas.
