If you have a keen interest in health informatics and are looking for a course-based masters program (no thesis), and think the University of Waterloo is the place to pursue your graduate education, I encourage you to consider our Master of Health Informatics (MHI) program.

Image not availableThe program is "course based" meaning our goal is not to train you to be a researcher.  (If you are considering a PhD in your future, you might be better to consider looking at our MSc offerings.)  Instead, the MHI prepares you for an exciting career in the health informatics field - a job area where data continues to suggest a significant and growing demand for professionals.

The program is 100% online. You can study from the comfort of your office or home. The program requires completion of 9 semester-long courses (4 months) plus spending one semester in a practicuum setting practicing the craft of health informatics.  If you take the program on a full time basis, you earn your MHI in 16 months.  If you take the program on a part-time basis you can take just one course per semester, so the program would take 9 semesters (3 years) plus a term spent on your practicum.

Check us out. You can apply directly, and do not need to have a nominated supervisor. I am the Program Lead and would be happy to answer any questions you might have about our program.
