Health Informatics Graduate Certificate
The Health Informatics Graduate Certificate is a 12-credit online certificate in the College of Public Health that focuses on the application of information technology to the healthcare profession in order to create tools and procedures that facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of patients by healthcare practitioners. You’ll gain the hands-on skills necessary for navigating business, ethical and legal issues of electronic health record and health information management systems designed for the healthcare industry. Study the impact of information technology on healthcare business practices and strategy, and investigate ethical and legal aspects of electronic health record systems.
You can complete the certificate entirely online on a part-time basis, finishing the 12 required credits in two years or less. Although you won’t be taking classes on campus, you’ll complete your online coursework and projects in groups with fellow students. You may complete the certificate either as a supplement to your primary graduate degree in the College of Public Health or as an independent program.
