Graduate Certificate in Health Informatics
About the Graduate Certificate in Health Informatics
The Graduate Certificate in Health Informatics offered by the Department of Health Management and Informatics provides learners with the skills necessary to participate in the selection, use, and evaluation of information technology applications throughout the health services industry. The certificate program is designed for students, physicians, nurses, managers, information system designers, consultants, and others committed to the application of information technology for improving the quality, safety, and efficiency of health services.
Students may pursue the HI Certificate in either the residential or executive format. Students who wish to pursue only the HI Certificate must apply to the HMI Department and the Office of Graduate Studies for admission to the Graduate Certificate program. Students currently enrolled in a non-HMI Graduate program also need to formally apply for the Certificate. Students enrolled in the MHA degree program may earn a HI Certificate concurrently with their Master's degree.
The HI Certificate requires the completion of four courses (12 credit hours total). All students must complete HMI 7430 Introduction to Health Informatics, and may choose any three other health informatics courses to fulfill the remaining nine hours. Students will choose their courses in consultation with the HMI academic advisor.
