Health Informatics Minor | 2017
The Health Informatics minor provides a general background in IT core areas required for IT professionals including programming, systems analysis and design, databases, human computer interaction and security. This minor will provide a solid foundation for those wishing to continue either into postgraduate Medicine or into a Health Informatics Master’s program, and is particular well suited to those wishing to combine Medicine with Information Technology (Health Informatics).
Along with a pathway to entry into postgraduate medical school, this degree also provides a pathway into a Master of Health Informatics or Master of Information Technology, which can lead to careers as an IT Health Informatician, Health Informatics Administrator or Educator, along with other areas such as Health Leadership Management, Health Data/Information Management, Health Administrator, or Health IT Technologist. The Health Informatics minor can also lead to Honours and research based Masters or continuing towards a PhD in health informatics.
