Health Informatics (Distance Learning) MSc

This course is accredited by CILIP

Health Informatics is one of the fastest growing areas within healthcare. In its simplest form, health informatics is about getting the information to the right person at the right time.

This CILIP-accredited course is aimed at health care professionals who want to improve services in their sector by getting more out of information and communication technologies. It's taught online so you can fit it around your work.

Alongside the more specialised knowledge, you'll acquire valuable transferable skills such as presentation and report writing. We can also help you develop leadership and management capabilities.

First year students take part in an online induction before the course starts. The rest of the course uses specialised software to deliver lectures, seminars and tutorials online, in real time. In the final year, you'll complete a research dissertation, supervised by an academic.

This course is not recruiting for 2019.
