Graduate Certificate in Informatics for Public Health

The Graduate Certificate in Informatics for Public Health offers to further and meet the growing demand for professional education and development in the field of public health informatics.  The certificate provides participants with basic knowledge of issues and application of informatics in areas of public health including surveillance, prevention, preparedness, and health promotion, and competence in evaluating and discovering solutions for the current and future public health informatics challenges.

The Graduate Certificate in Informatics for Public Health is designed to serve as a stand-alone certificate program for non-degree seeking students, public health care professionals and as an additional option for Master of Science in Health Informatics students, Master of Public Health students, and other Graduate students.  Courses taken for the certificate program are not intended to fulfill the requirements of any current Graduate degree at MU.

The Certificate program will launch in Fall 2018, with the first course - HMI 7431 Foundation of Public Health Informatics - offered.  Please contact the HMI Department for further information about the certificate program and plan of study options.
