Welcome to the Department of Health Informatics and Administration (HIA). HIA provides interwoven curricula with multiple entry points for students from the undergraduate level to professional continuing education, and in particular provides integrated paths for students to progress from the undergraduate to the PhD level in Health Informatics and Administration. The department’s goal is to better enable UWM to engage in a sustained health informatics and administration research effort that will enhance and fulfill the University’s role as a doctoral research institution of academic and professional excellence, to attract highly qualified students who demonstrate the potential for intellectual development, innovation, and leadership for their communities, to establish and maintain productive relationships with appropriate public and private organizations at the local, regional, state, national, and international levels, and to provide educational leadership in meeting future social, cultural, and information–related technological challenges. The department consists of nine faculty specializing in Health Informatics, Health Administration, or both.
