Start a career in health care – without ever treating a patient
Healthcare informatics majors can earn an average salary of $50,000-plus.
As America’s population continues to age, the health care industry is expected to nearly double with five to 10 years – and so, too, are the careers that help the industry function.
When you graduate with a healthcare informatics degree from the University of Saint Mary, you will have the skills you need to succeed in the industry. With a bachelor’s degree, you can expect mid-level responsibilities and pay grades. Many graduates choose to immediately enter the workforce, and add a master’s degree in business administration or healthcare informatics.
For your career, job titles may vary, but common careers may include:
Certified health information specialist
Information services leader
Medical informatics specialist
Health care administrator
With training, advanced degrees and experience, many graduates move up organizational ladders to achieve officer-level positions such as chief information officer.
Average salaries for graduates with bachelor’s degrees is approximately $40,000 to $50,000 per year.
