The interdisciplinary master of Science in Health Informatics (MSHI) is housed at The iSchool at Drexel, College of Information Science and Technology, and draws on the strengths of health-related colleges at Drexel University, including the College of Nursing and Health Professions.
The MSHI focuses on the systems of informatics and psycho-social aspects of the healthcare field. The program provides students from diverse academic and professional backgrounds with the knowledge and skills to use information and knowledge processing methodology and information and communication technology efficiently and responsibly in order to improve health outcomes in varied settings, including medicine, nursing and public health in primary and hospital care, industry, government, and academia. Students graduate with an understanding of both information systems and healthcare that complements their prior educations and experiences.
The MSHI is offered on a full-time or part-time basis, and is completely online. For more information, or to apply, visit www.drexel.com
