Welcome from the Director
It is an exciting time for medical informatics. The field is expanding along with the need for accurate, secure, and interoperable data used with advanced technology. The goal is greater value, and improved health outcomes for consumers and their communities. The Medical 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 Medical Informatics Graduate Program provides both theory and application, with engagement in real systems. We are 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 analytics, healthcare information security and privacy, and imaging informatics. Whether you are an on-campus student or an online student, Michigan Tech’s Medical Informatics Graduate Program offers innovative curriculum and strong research opportunities with experienced faculty to help prepare students for success in this growing field.
If you are as excited about the possibilities as we are, please contact us.
