Joint Master's Programme in
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....
Biology, medicine, computer science and statistics intertwine in this broad Master's programme and the biological data derived from genomic studies, structural biology an
Bioinformatics is a broad subject in which biology, medicine, computer science and statistics intertwine. Many times, the basis for bioinformatics is the massive amount of biological data derived from genomic studies, structural biology and other areas of biology and medicine. Computational biology also involves mathematical modelling of biological systems.
Special features of the programme:
A combination of advanced research with training of current techniques, as well as the development of novel software tools.
Close connections to research in an international environment.
Proteomics, genomics, transcriptomics and other data will be analysed and combined to gain a global understanding of a biological problem.
