Master of Science in Health Informatics

In order to prepare health informaticists with the tools for the future of healthcare, we have launched a program redesign process starting in Fall 2020. As a result, we have closed MSHI applications until further notice. We expect to have more information by December 31, 2020. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to Carolyn Arroyo, Assistant Director of Graduate Enrollment and Diversity Outreach.

The Art and Science of Health Data Analytics

USF’s Master of Science in Health Informatics program (MSHI) is focused on training the next generation of informaticists in the art and science of health data analytics. Healthcare and technical professionals learn everything from the basics of programming to cutting-edge statistical and machine learning methods in interprofessional, project-based classrooms.

Health Informatics uses mathematical, scientific, technological, heuristic and cognitive methods for modeling and solving complex and heterogeneous problems. Students proceeding through the Health Informatics program will develop an understanding of the ways in which information (meaningful data) is converted into knowledge (justified belief) and be able to develop theories that further biomedical research and improve healthcare delivery systems.
