UCL in the News: UCL re-launches MSc in health informatics

14 June 2007

UCL's Centre for Health Informatics and Multiprofessional Education (CHIME) has announced the re-launch of its MSc Health Informatics.

From September 2007 the revamped programme will be delivered via online blended learning, offering maximum flexibility for students. The MSc is designed for professionals and decision-makers wishing to contribute to the development of high quality healthcare in a technologically advanced and information rich society. …

The blended learning programme means that significant portions of the course are completed online, reducing attendance at UCL from three days per month to three days of on-campus activities per module. …

Professor David Ingram, director of CHIME, commented: "Our aim is to make the course more flexible and accessible to a wide range of healthcare professionals. New teaching techniques mean that studying for the MSc can now be combined with existing career or personal commitments." …

A limited number of part funded EPSRC studentships are available to UK or EU students. Applications for the September 2007 intake need to be submitted by 31 July.
