Health Informatics, Professional Science (MS)

The Professional Science Masters in Health Informatics differs from a traditional master’s program in that it is interdisciplinary in its approach. Graduates of the program are trained in data science and health analytics skilled in working with large and complex data sets. In addition to the hard skills, the PSM focuses on business oriented “soft skills” in project management, communication, and teamwork that are essential to successful leaders in healthcare. As part of the degree requirements, a real-world capstone project will place students in a laboratory or a health care provider working directly with industry leaders. This will result in more well-rounded graduates who have mastered necessary skills and knowledge for improving the quality of health care, reducing medical errors and costs, and transforming healthcare as it is known in the Charlotte region and beyond.
