Health Informatics Discussion Forum

Hi everyone,

I am a doctor trying to switch my career into a more technology associated sector and the best I could find is Health Informatics.

I am planning to take up Helath informatics course (Ontario college graduate certificate programme- 1 year) from George Brown College, Toronto, Canada. Can someone please throw in some light into the future and scope of this programme? Does it have a future in Canada? Is this programme going to help me find a good job? My plan is to first take this course, work for a year or two and then apply for Masters in HI. 

What do you people think? Will it be a wise choice? Please give your suggestions.

Thank you for your time.
