List of courses to meet the degree requirements in the masters program in Health Informatics.
The curriculum below is effective for all Masters students beginning study in Fall Semester 2007. The curriculum was designed to improve the quality of your educational experience by providing additional background skills and knowledge that are fundamental to the ability to study informatics, and by providing foundational courses that provide a core set of informatics skills and knowledge. The curriculum allows flexibility in course selection. Prefoundational courses may count as support courses with your advisor's approval.
