The Graduate Certificate in Health Informatics provides learners with the skills necessary to participate in the selection, use, and evaluation of information technology applications throughout the health services industry. The certificate program is designed for physicians, nurses, managers, information system designers, consultants, and others committed to the application of information technology for improving the quality, safety, and efficiency of health services.
The Graduate Certificate in Health Informatics is designed to serve as either a stand-alone certificate program for non-degree learners interested in health and biomedical informatics or an integrated certificate program for degree-seeking University of Missouri students who are enrolled in a graduate degree program. All four courses may be applied toward the ultimate completion of the Master of Science (MS) in Health Informatics degree.
Students may pursue the certificate through either the Executive mode, an online distance-learning format that incorporates on-campus weekend meetings, or the Residential mode, which includes traditional in person classes that meet two times per week.
