Health Informatics

Certificates allow you to complete a specific group of university courses (for credit) as either part of your degree studies or separately. Additional details about certificates are available here.

The Health Informatics Certificate is a one-of-a-kind educational experience.

You will become fully engaged in the concepts and strategies of health information management. From the development of educational Web sites to designing and developing database applications, your experiences will immerse you in the real life of health-care data management and patient wellness.

This certificate will enable you to develop and manage information systems in order to enhance the quality of client care. This certificate builds on York's existing nursing and health studies programs, and may be completed at the same time as health-related degree studies.

Who can take it?

This certificate is open to the following applicants:

  1. current York students in a health-related discipline, or
  2. new applicants to York who already hold a university degree or college diploma in a health-related discipline.

How to apply

  1. If you are a current York student, contact the School of Health Policy & Management to find out about admissibility requirements and the application process.
  2. If you are a new applicant to York and already have a university degree or college diploma in a health-related discipline, you must ensure first that you meet the minimum requirements for admission to the University by applying through the Office of Admissions.
