An indication that Health Informatics is really taking off as a profession and research area:
BALTIMORE – The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine will offer a new degree program in informatics this September.
The one-year Master’s degree program is designed to prepare graduates for informatics leadership positions in clinical, public health and scientific settings.
The Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) approved the new program in June.
According to program literature, graduates “should be capable of developing or leading innovative applications of information technology and information systems that address biological, clinical or public health priorities, studying how information is organized and used and evaluating this work to contribute to the scientific field.” Program requirements include core, selective and elective coursework, grand rounds and a capstone project.
