An Urgent Need for Health Informatics Credentials
In the fast-growing, data-driven healthcare sector, medical, clinical, information technology, and other professionals are recognizing the urgent need for essential health informatics credentials. Get started with the Foundations of Health Informatics certificate.
A Fundamentals Certificate
The Foundations of Health Informatics graduate certificate provides academic training in fundamental topic areas such as security and privacy, data analysis, programming, and system analysis. The 12-credit program that can be completed in two semesters and fully online if you wish.
Earn a Master's in Health Informatics
The Foundations certificate can be stacked with the 9-credit focus-area Health Informatics certificates in Artificial Intelligence, Public Health, and Security and Privacy. Successful completion of the Foundations certificate plus two of the three focused Health Informatics certificates, below, leads to the completion of the 30-credit Michigan Tech Master's in Health Informatics.
SAT 5114: Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare (3 credits)
SAT 5141: Clinical Decision Support Modeling (3 credits)
EET 4501: Applied Machine Learning (3 credits)
Successful completion of this focus area will result in an Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare graduate certificate.
SAT 5283: Information Governance and Risk Management (3 credits)
SAT 5815: Digital Forensics (3 credits)
SAT 5817: Security Penetration Test and Audit (3 credits)
Successful completion of this focus area will result in a Security and Privacy in Healthcare graduate certificate.
3 of the 4 courses listed are required to earn in Public Health Informatics graduate certificate.
