Johns Hopkins Offers New Health Informatics Degree

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.

  1. It is great to hear that. For details of the course and standardisation thereto, you may consult with University of Oslo, Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia and others those universities that have already stated to deliver the programme.

    By the way, I have graduated from AAU last July in the post graduate study of Health Informatics. My research work has secured Excellent. Furhter I have done my first degree in Information System from the same university. And am happy if you would like to communicate me in this line and drop me somelines through ledammy2004@yahoo.com

  2. While it’s interesting to see John Hopkins offering a Master’s degree, I am concerned about some of the responses from people about it. Someone who graduated from any university in any language should have proper command of the English language. The lack of this explains why IT is in shambles in the U.S.
