I just received some information (see below) from Stanley Hochberg, MD, regarding the Masters of Science in Health Informatics Program at Boston's Northeastern University. I've had a few interactions with Dr. Hochberg, and he looks like he is making excellent progress with this new program.
The Masters Program in Health Informatics at Northeastern is now accepting applications for the Fall of 2009. Since its inception two years ago, the program has grown to over 70 students, the majority of whom work full time and enroll in the program part time. The program has 18 adjunct faculty who come from senior positions in health care delivery and private industry. Several of the faculty are well known nationally for their professional accomplishments and involvement in setting policy in the area of health care IT. Each class meets once a week at night from 6 to 8:30 pm on Northeastern's Boston campus and most part time students take 2 or 3 classes a semester. Students come with backgrounds in health care or technology, and include nurses, pharmacists, physicians, programmers, project managers, and analysts amongst others.
