The Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Health Informatics is designed to offer professionals working in the field of health care an opportunity to earn a master level degree on the effective use of information technology, data science, and knowledge representation to impact health and health care. Professionals in non-health fields can also enhance their skills to transition to careers in this rapidly expanding field. Core courses provide a background in clinical informatics, while electives allow one to focus in the areas of clinical workflows and modern health technology, as well as skills with data analysis. The degree prepares graduates to enhance their skills for careers in a wide range of health care settings.
Clinical informaticians work to develop novel information technology, computer science and knowledge management methodologies for disease prevention, treatment, more efficient and safer patient care delivery and knowledge access. This field requires close collaboration among clinicians, biomedical and computational scientists, knowledge management professionals, educators and health care consumers.
The MAS program is formatted to meet the needs of working professionals. It is offered entirely online and can be taken full-time or part-time. Courses are offered in condensed 7.5 week sessions. The degree plan is 30 credits including: 12 credits of Core Coursework, 15 credits of Electives, and 3 credits of Applied Project for the final culminating event.
All students are required to meet general university admission requirements.
Some programs may have additional requirements for admission.
No GRE entrance exam is required for admission to the MAS in Health Informatics.
