In the Joint Master's Programme in Health Informatics programme from Karolinska Institute, you will learn methods to make healthcare safer, more efficient and of higher quality through computer based information and knowledge management.
- IT implementation in healthcare requires people with a solid understanding of both the needs of the healthcare sector and the strengths and limitations of technology.
- A health informatician's unique interdisciplinary expertise makes him/her particularly suited to assume a coordinating and bridging role between these two areas.
- The second semester covers basic health informatics methods for user needs and requirements engineering, methods for evaluating different aspects of health information systems during and after implementation, as well as health informatics standards. Further, students will get an introduction into data science methods and have a course on scientific methods at advanced level.
- The third semester provides an introduction to project management where previously studied data science methods will be applied in project form. Further, students have the choice of either a course in information security or entrepreneurship.
