We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Health Informatics equip postgraduates with advanced knowledge of the design and function of computerised information systems for use in healthcare.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes are also available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Computer Science. Relevant work experience is also beneficial for admission.
Training typically covers the management, analysis and use of data collected from large scale health systems (such as electronic hospital records), and personal devices (such as apps and wearables). You will also gain key software development and management skills that are critical for deploying health systems in various contexts.
Consideration is also given to employing data in the decision-making, planning and delivery of better health care. For example, you might explore how bioinformatics can identify trends in disease and help classify treatment on local, national and even global scales.
Many courses offer professional accreditation through bodies such as the UK Council for Health Informatics Professions (UKCHIP) which is highly beneficial to your future career. This is especially true if you opt for roles in public health and legislative roles within governing health bodies.
