The science of health informatics drives innovation-defining future approaches to information and knowledge management in biomedical research, clinical care, and public health. Health informatics (HI) comprises applied research and the practice of informatics across clinical and public health domains.
Informatics researchers from Yale University, develop, introduce, and evaluate new biomedically motivated methods in areas as diverse as data mining, natural language or text processing, cognitive science, human-computer interaction, decision support, databases and algorithms for analyzing large amounts of data generated in public health, clinical research and genomics/proteomics.The length of study for the Health Informatics Concentration MS in HI is two academic years. First-year courses survey the field; the typical second-year courses are more technical and put greater emphasis on mastering the skills in health informatics. The degree also requires a capstone project in the second year.Applicants should typically have an undergraduate degree with a focus in health, computer science and mathematics/statistics. Students with a master’s degree or other related degrees may be allowed to enroll in additional elective courses in lieu of required courses, if they can demonstrate prior proficiency in required courses.
