Health Informatics

The way we do science, how we think about health care delivery, the mechanics of our scholarship, our forms of artistic expression, and even the pattern of our social and legal interactions are changing every day.

Graduate degrees in the field of Health Informatics prepare individuals for research and academic careers (Ph.D.) or job opportunities in the application of information technology to health systems. The demand for individuals with skills in health informatics continues to increase in a variety of associated fields including health services management, medicine, nursing and other health professions, or in commercial and public research institutions.

microscope OUR GOAL is to maximize the utilization of contemporary information technologies to improve the storage, organization, retrieval, application, and evaluation of health information in order to support health care research, education, and practice.
