Joint Master's Programme in

Health Informatics

The programme is aimed at students who are interested in Information Technology and want to apply this to the medicine or healthcare fields. It is given jointly between Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm University and you will get a joint degree from both universities.


Health informatics deals with learning how to improve modern healthcare through efficient management of knowledge and health information. You will learn methods to make healthcare safer, more efficient and of higher quality through computer-based information and knowledge management.


Students with a technical background start by taking courses in basic medical science and healthcare organisation and management at Karolinska Institutet while students with a background in healthcare take courses in basic computer and systems sciences at Stockholm University. After this, both groups join to focus on health informatics. In the second year, students profile their education by taking elective courses and complete a degree project.

Career

Many health informaticians work as project managers, while other common professions within the field are IT managers, clinical informaticians, application experts, requirements analysts, system specialists and developers, interaction designers, evaluators, and researchers.

Who should apply?

Students should apply who have a B.Sc. or a professional degree equivalent to a Bachelor degree in Healthcare, Biomedicine, Medical Technology, Computer and Systems Sciences, Informatics or other related subjects.

Why should I apply?

You should apply if you have the desire to take a leading role in developing healthcare through the use of ICT and if you would like to obtain a joint degree from two world-leading research universities.
