Master of Health Informatics - Course offerings and program sequence


The Master of Health Informatics (MHI) program is mainly a course-based curriculum. In order to graduate, students are required to complete the following:

  • Seven core courses 
  • Two electives
  • One 12-16 week (420 hours) practicum course (HLTH 640)

There is no research/thesis option.

The MHI degree will be completed within two years for full-time students who take three course per term (three terms per year). Part-time students take one course per term and must complete their degree within four years of initial program entry. Students who would like to increase their course load must change status (see Grad Studies Change of enrolment status form) from part-time to full-time. All graduate students must maintain continuous registration for each term of the program.

While in the program, students should expect to spend 12-15 hours per week on each course. For a full-time student that means they will spend up to 45 hours per week on coursework. See part-time course sequence and full-time course sequence below.

Note: The official source for degree requirements is the Graduate Studies Academic Calendar. Current students should reference the academic calendar archives for course sequencing.
