Course content

The School of Computer Science and Statistics and the School of Medicine offer a joint MSc programme in Health Informatics. Health Informatics is broadly concerned with the application of Information Technology in the health sector. It is a truly interdisciplinary field in which medicine, computer science, management science, statistics and engineering are all represented.

The main aim of the MSc programme is to give students a broad understanding of both the principles underlying the field of health informatics and of its practical applications. The course is intended for suitably qualified applicants currently working or aspiring to work in a position in the health sector which requires the efficient and cost effective application of information technology. The MSc course runs over two academic years (September - June) on a part-time basis, on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings to facilitate those in full-time employment. The first year incorporates both taught and practical components with a strong emphasis on practical team-based continuous assessment.

Students take a total of seven modules from the following: introduction to health informatics; introduction to computing (for those from a health science background); introduction to health sciences (for those from a computing background); health information systems; clinical decision support systems; biomedical imaging; human computer interaction in healthcare; health informatics research paper and bioinformatics. Not all modules will be offered each year. Year 2 students receive instruction in research methodology and undertake an independent research project.

This course has been co-funded under the National Development Plan (Graduate Skills Conversion Programme) for EU fee paying students.
