Hi Health Informatics Community,i am new here and I have found the site by searching through the topic of health informatics,and in my opinion is a gold mine for someone who wants to find more about health informatics.I've been reading through the blogs and forums the last days and i have answered many of my questions ,but a few remain.
I have a bachelor in Informatics (computer technology) and i was thinking of continuing my studies with a master in health informatics.I am currently in a dilemma of what to do and what to choose.I am a bit confused because i mostly see students with a healthcare degree get involved in the field of health informatics and i was thinking it would be a bad choice for someone who has a background of computer technology to get in this field and it would be better for him to chase and pursue other paths and doing a different master. What is your opinion,is it a good choice?what would you recommend?
Also in the field of health informatics and bioinformatics,i see lots of specializations,which would be more appropriate for someone like me?Which is the best path to follow?Also which university is better to attend & which course?I'm not interested in an online degree as i see many universities offer only online courses for health informatics.
Sorry for asking to much.
Any reply & advice would be much appreciated!
