Patient Care is Not Your Only Option

USM's healthcare informatics degree 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” work in health care informatics. Health care informatics professionals are highly-trained, critical thinkers that keep the technological infrastructure of health care running effectively and efficiently.

Healthcare informatics is a combination of:

  • Computer science

  • Information technology

  • Health care

  • Human resources and data management

USM students learn to manage resources, sensitive data, and devices to optimize information for businesses and organizations in both the private and public sector. Graduates move on to rewarding and challenging work—building infrastructures in clinical care, dentistry, pharmacy, public health, research, and more.
