Welcome from the Director
It is an exciting time for health informatics. The field continues to expand and our graduates are landing terrific advanced positions at research centers and laboratories, incubators, start-up companies, and health care settings, such as primary, in-patient, ambulatory, behavioral health, community and regional initiatives.
The Health Informatics Graduate Program at Michigan Tech uses an interdisciplinary approach to solve problems in medicine and health care. We unite the disciplines of medicine, data science, nursing, computer science, biomedical engineering, economics, public policy and other areas essential to learning, experiencing, and working in this multi-dimensional field, from effective design to appropriate technology use.
Michigan Tech’s Health Informatics Graduate Program provides students the curriculum and research opportunities to dive deep into topic areas such as decision support systems, telemedicine, ethics, security and privacy of data, disease management, consumer health informatics, mHealth application development, and translational research. We are also active in our local community. Our students build on the skills learned in classrooms and labs, interacting in a variety of health-care settings, such as primary, in-patient, ambulatory, behavioral health, community, and regional initiatives.
The program’s multi-disciplinary approach and environment enables us to tailor educational curriculum to meet your needs. Gain expertise and obtain certification in specialized areas such as healthcare data informatics and visualization, healthcare information security and privacy, and imaging informatics. Whether you are an on-campus student or an online student, Michigan Tech’s Health Informatics Graduate Program offers innovative curriculum and strong research opportunities with experienced faculty to help prepare students for success in this growing field.
