  • Hello,

    I just recently completed an MS in Health Informatics from Walden University. They have a lot of online opportunities. I also constantly see both online and campus programs when I search for anything with the words 'Health Informatics' in the search. Hope that helps.


  • Also, I just got to really explore this site and there is an excellent list over on the Links and Resources Tab, under Education.
    • Thanks a lot Jerry! I m looking for on campus programs in California. I know UC Davis has one.
  • Neha, I too am looking for a good program and have been looking at online programs. I like the University of South Florida's program because they seem to be the only one tied into a hospital. Some of the others have faculty with limited exposure to the hospital setting and that is a concern for me. I am also going through the free courses offered through this web site and they are excellent. hope that helps.
