Overview

Applications on smartphones, wearable sensors and intelligent environment monitoring systems are able to gather personal health data that can be used to facilitate decision-making and in the development of personalised care plans. Healthcare professionals can use this information to support the patients in managing their illness, monitor and support independent living, and deliver therapies.

This MSc in Digital Health  at the University of Malta  provides students with the necessary technological expertise together with an understanding of the health landscape to help and support patients, increase staff productivity, management of patient records, reduce errors, extend conventional care, and influence the future of healthcare.

The course is structured in two streams where applicants having a technological background will be introduced to relevant aspects of healthcare, while applicants having a background in health science or life science will be introduced to artificial intelligence, data analysis and programming. A set of core topics is common to both streams and includes group work that will allow students with different backgrounds to learn from a variety of skill sets and apply their knowledge to create innovative digital health solutions.
