How much? How long?

experienceEvery candidate has the same two questions: "How much will this cost?" and "How long will it take?"

Remember the old MasterCard commercials where they tallied up the cost along the way but at the end the total experience was "Priceless?" Well, that's us.

There is a specific cost you can find on the UAB Tuition and Fees page. But once you are graduated with a Master of Science in Health Informatics from UAB, you will be prepared to become a senior- and executive-level leader in the healthcare IT industry and you really can't put a price on that.
