According to Ahmad, without pursuing a graduate degree in health informatics from the University of Waterloo, he would not be working in the healthcare sector. He credits the School of Public Health Sciences for providing the support and advice necessary to finding a meaningful practicum placement - his hard work paid off when his practicum placement evolved into a full-time job offer. Ahmad is responsible for translating important metrics into meaningful insights for his organization. This data provides evidence of successes and shortfalls in the health system and informs senior leadership in making decisions that will enhance health quality and clinical standards.
Ahmad sincerely believes that this is the best time to join the healthcare sector with many vacancies. The majority of healthcare organizations are updating their IT infrastructure and require a lot of help. The MHI at the University of Waterloo will prepare you for a healthcare career.
