About the Profession

Our health care system needs leaders, educators and advocates for technology, the use of digital solutions, AI in health care and beyond. These professionals will have the training and education to use digital systems to use data systems to enable data-driven and integrated health care strategies – as well as enhance and connect care models using quality data and evidence-based practices. Graduates of this program will be able to facilitate the integration of machine learning, clinical algorithms, AI and smart systems into clinical environments – either as clinical employees or as industry consultants – and help develop and introduce rapidly emerging technologies.

Graduates of this program can work with a variety of organizations and other institutions that impact health care, including hospitals, government, consulting and technology companies – both public and private. They will bridge the technology and clinical gap through hands-on data science, VR, machine learning and other initiatives to improve patient outcomes and health care delivery. They will apply design thinking approaches to rapidly adapt, innovate and implement new technologies as part of a health care team or with an industry partner.
