This certificate provides health professionals with in-depth knowledge of interprofessional informatics, system design and analysis, databases, consumer informatics, clinical decision support, knowledge representation, and population health informatics.

Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to develop and teach program curricula for health informatics, as well as lead the successful deployment and use of health information technology in health systems. Program assignments will be customized to align with a student’s professional field, such as nursing, public health, medicine, pharmacy, and others.

There are three synchronous sessions required for all students; however, students complete most coursework online each week when it is convenient for them. Students have the option to attend the sessions for each of the courses either in person or virtually.
