Health Care Informatics

MLIS/MS Health Care Informatics

The MLIS/MS Health Care Informatics is a collaborative program offered by SOIS and the College of Health Sciences designed to provide students with theoretical and practical exposure to the evolving field of healthcare informatics as practiced in hospitals, clinics, professional offices, corporations, the government, the insurance industry, and higher education.

Prospective Careers

The goal of the Program is to prepare Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) students for careers in health care informatics, and be able to assume roles as clinical informationists.

For the M.S. Health Care Informatics (HCI) students, the coordinated degree program will introduce a new content area that is vital to the health care community. The HCI students will, in addition, develop the skills to access and synthesize the large amount of scientific knowledge necessary to support clinical care.
