In autumn, the private university UMIT TIROL will start the master's degree in medical informatics for the first time. As part of the course, students are trained to become international experts who will help shape digitalization in the future healthcare sector. The international health IT company Cerner has now announced that it is supporting the course as a cooperation partner.
Knowledge and experience from 20 years of university research and teaching at the University of UMIT TYROL have been incorporated into the conception of the medical informatics course. In terms of content, the master's degree focuses on core topics and future fields of medical informatics: clinical information systems, health networking and eHealth, health data and decision science, and biomedical technology.
Organizationally, the four-semester course, which ends with the academic title Master of Science (MSc) in Medical Informatics, is divided into presence phases on the campus of the University of Hall in Tyrol, phases of accompanied self-study, a practical project in the cooperation network and the master's thesis. Classroom teaching usually takes place weekly on two to three block days. This ensures that the course is compatible with part-time work or with family obligations. The languages of instruction are English and German.
