School of Medicine Offers new Program in Clinical Informatics

By Jill Boy

The School of Medicine is now home to the Master of Management in Clinical Informatics program, which will welcome its first group of students in the fall of 2014. Applications for the program are being accepted now.

This innovative program, originally launched in the Duke University Fuqua School of Business, offers a unique blend of business and informatics courses to prepare graduates for managerial and executive positions in health care such as Chief Medical Information Officer, Chief Information Officer, Implementation Manager, Analyst, or Management Consultant. Graduates in these leadership roles operationalize, manage, and evaluate health informatics in a variety of settings, including academia, government, and industry. Kevin Schulman, MD, MBA, is director of the program.

Classes will be offered every other Friday and Saturday to accommodate working professionals. The program runs twelve months.  Diversity of student experience is a hallmark of the Program. In the classroom, IT professionals, clinicians, health administrators and consultants from the U.S. and abroad engage in creative discussions based upon their diverse experiences and foster peer-to-peer learning.

A unique aspect of the program is the dedicated career development curriculum designed to help students advance in their careers.

Applications are being accepted for a limited number of seats for the class entering in August 2014. Apply at
