Healthcare Informatics Certificate

Healthcare Informatics is a high-demand area of expertise utilizing statistics, health informatics and technology. Graduates from this concentration must synthesize information from the sciences (pharmacology, pathophysiology), technology (computer-based decision modeling, health informatics), and statistics. The Healthcare Informatics certificate track is much more focused on understanding and using computer tools such as computer based decision modeling and applied statistical analyses.

The 15 credit hour Healthcare Informatics Certificate is comprised of five courses as defined below:

PRST 6550 Computer Based Decision Modeling for Healthcare Administrators OR DS6900 Health Analytics

PRST 6540 Health Informatics

Upon completion of the 15 credit hours, you will receive a Certificate in Healthcare Informatics from Tennessee Tech University. Depending on your career goals, you may choose to continue your studies in the MPS Healthcare Administration degree program (33 credit hours).
