Think 'patient care' is the only health care career option?

USM's healthcare informatics minor will teach you technological skill to work in health care – minus the patient care.

Health care offers many of the world’s most rapidly growing professions – including “behind the scenes” strategists called health care informatiscists. These highly-trained and exceptional thinkers help keep the technology infrastructure of health care running effectively and efficiently.

The healthcare informatics minor at the University of Saint Mary will give you transferable skills that will position you to earn high-paying careers in the health care industry.

So what is healthcare informatics? It’s a combination of:

  • Computer science

  • Information technology

  • Health care

  • Human resources and data management

Students learn to manage resources, sensitive data, and devices to optimize materials  for the health care industry. Graduates move on to work building information technology infrastructure for areas of clinical care, dentistry, pharmacy, public health, research and more.

The healthcare informatics minor is part of the information technology program at USM.
