Approved: Joint health informatics degree
The first class of full-time MHI students will begin their studies in fall 2012. Students working toward a health informatics certificate will begin this coming fall.
“This new degree is very exciting,” said Dean Jeff MacKie-Mason. “There are few social problems as pressing and costly, at home and abroad, as those in health.
“There are huge opportunities for us to make a difference in people’s lives by designing, developing, and improving health information technologies and systems, health information analysis, and social interactions around health issues. This is a major thrust in our move to be the best iSchool in the world at socially engaged information and computing.”
Faculty, staff, and students worked for several years to bring this program into existence.Explore posts in the same categories: Faculty
