Overview

Healthcare and technical professionals learn everything from the basics of programming to cutting-edge statistical and machine learning methods in interprofessional, project-based classrooms.

Health Informatics uses mathematical, scientific, technological, heuristic and cognitive methods for modeling and solving complex and heterogeneous problems. Students proceeding through the Health Informatics program will develop an understanding of the ways in which information (meaningful data) is converted into knowledge (justified belief) and be able to develop theories that further biomedical research and improve healthcare delivery systems.

Career

The demand for Health Informatics workers is projected to grow at twice the rate compared to the overall employment rate. The need for health informatics specialists is prominent in both government and private enterprises to standardize and optimize the collection and sharing of data among electronic health recording systems, ensure data security and integrate care to share information, coordinate care and provide efficient effective services to patients. 

Graduates are well-prepared for current and future challenges in the field. They're equipped with a deep understanding of the healthcare industry and the technical skills to work with computer scientists, programmers, doctors, nurses, psychologists and other healthcare professionals. 

Additionally, our program emphasizes building strong entrepreneurs and advocates for Health Informatics through various curriculum offerings.
