Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Health Informatics (PBC HI)

Overview  |  Tuition  |  Calendar  |  Admissions  |  Courses

 

The role of health informatics in the delivery of patient care is becoming more complex, with job opportunities emerging in nontraditional settings. The University of Illinois at Chicago has recognized these shifts in the health informatics field and developed four online graduate-level health informatics certificates to address the growing need for specialized health informatics professionals.

Each standalone certificate will focus on one health informatics specialty area: fundamentals, leadership, health data science and mobile health. After completing your certificate program, you can apply earned credits directly to our Master of Science in Health Informatics (MS HI).

The program increased my visibility and credibility, which has led to a promotion for a position that is currently being created. This program is rewarding, the faculty is outstanding and has provided me the leverage that I need when addressing work-related issues.
