The developing discipline of health informatics is becoming an increasingly important component of health provision in the 21st Century. This programme builds on the successful MSc in Health Informatics which has been running at Swansea University since 2001. This course in Health Informatics is designed for those with experience in health informatics who want to make a contribution to the field by helping develop the knowledge base.
The focus is on primary research, undertaken over 2 years. Research skills are developed through three short modules as the student develops their own health informatics research project in the first 9 months of the course. The research project may be undertaken within the student’s own place of work. The research is supported within an organisation with a strong research reputation. Each student will have one to one supervision at all stages of the research process. This programme in Health Informatics is based within the award winning Centres for Excellence for Administrative Data and eHealth Research at Swansea University, as awarded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC). Through partnerships with National Health Service (NHS) bodies in Wales, we are able to offer a range of research opportunities.
