University targets nurses for health informatics master's programme

  • Comment

Nurses working in management and clinical care are being targeted by a new master’s programme that places as much emphasis on developing people as it does on developing health care systems.

The MSc in Health Informatics offered by the University of Leeds’ Yorkshire Centre for Health Informatics (YCHI) has been developed with partners in the NHS and industry and aims to meet current and future health care needs.

The latest Health Informatics Review sets out these needs, which include a commitment ‘to develop effective professional leadership for informatics staff, to form a pool of professional informatics specialists and improve the informatics capability of the general management workforce’.

As well as those already working in the NHS, the course also welcomes new graduates, and business professionals wanting to move into a health care setting.

Study can be undertaken over one year full-time or three years part-time. For those not wishing to complete a full Master’s degree, there is the option of diploma or certificate qualifications.

Programme director Dr Susan Clamp said: ‘What makes our course unique is its innovative content and its flexibility. There is a wide choice of topics and each module is delivered in intensive one-week periods of study, which allows the students to immerse themselves in the subject while interacting and sharing experiences with their teachers and peers.’
