Program Description:

The Program in Health Informatics is designed to be trans-disciplinary in its focus. In the U.S., this will be the first program in Informatics not to reside in a professional school. Students come from a variety of disciplines and bring their strengths of their discipline knowledge. They work in interdisciplinary teams to better understand the knowledge unique to each discipline and how that knowledge must be translated for use by other disciplines. In developing this program, the Department of Health Informatics has worked with representatives from Texas A and M University, Baylor College of Medicine, Rice University, The University of Houston, the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, and Texas Woman's University to improve opportunities for students entering the Health Informatics program and to create new electives available to the other schools.
