About the Program

Patient information is private and incredibly important to health care—in fact, to deliver the best care possible, healthcare providers need experts like you to provide and organize that sensitive information. In just two year's time, you can learn the skills you need to pursue an informatics career at a healthcare facility, government agency, or elsewhere.

Not only can you learn these important skills, you can fit it within your already busy schedule. That's right. We specifically designed this curriculum with online classes and limited residential requirements to make it easier for you to keep up with your full-time job and other responsibilities. To get started, you'll take courses that cover topics such as clinical, administrative, and health information systems, security in health care, strategic planning, and leadership development. If you concentrate in data analytics, you'll take courses such as Advanced Database Design, Business Intelligence for Healthcare, and Quantitative Methods. With the user experience concentration, your coursework will include User-Based Design and User-Based Research, among other subjects. The artificial intelligence (AI) concentration includes courses such as Applications of AI in Medicine and Integration of Artificial Intelligence into Clinical Workflow. All curriculum options include capstone projects. You’ll also complete a three-day residential visit each fall and spring semester.
