Master of Health Informatics (MHI) students
The Master of Health Informatics is an interdisciplinary program offered by the School of Information, the School of Public Health and the Medical School. This unique combination of disciplines offers students an unparalleled education that combines the practical and theoretical knowledge needed for a successful career in this burgeoning field. The MHI is an especially attractive option for individuals who are interested in leadership roles in health management, consulting or systems implementation.
These Faces of UMSI profiles will give you an introduction to some of our dedicated and versatile MHI students coming from backgrounds in technology, public health, sociology, medicine and beyond. Their aspirations are as wide-ranging as their backgrounds, but they share a common denominator: they chose to train at the intersection of health, technology and medicine in order to be as fully equipped as possible to evaluate the entire health care landscape and improve health outcomes for others. Read about their areas of interest and educational histories, what brought them to U-M (or what kept them here), their most valuable experiences and opportunities, and what they envision doing with their degrees down the line.
