health professional using data

Welcome from the Director

Welcome to the Health Informatics, MS program at Pace University, College of Health Professions! I am pleased to invite you to learn more about this exciting new, online program.

Health informatics uses data and technology to improve how healthcare is delivered and to improve the outcomes for patients and clinicians. This program is ideal for professionals in clinical and technology-related positions, or for those who are interested in data and healthcare.

Our curriculum aligns with the 10 foundational domains of health informatics as defined by the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA). The courses were designed by faculty from both the College of Health Professions and the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Science. The 10-course curriculum is divided equally between data-centric content and clinical background and application.

In addition to coursework, students will be required to undertake 120 hours of experiential learning (practicum). This requirement provides the opportunity to practice new skills in the workplace and provide the work experience needed to start your career.

The faculty, staff, and administration are all here to support our students and promote their academic prowess in this wonderful and important field of study.
