Vanderbilt’s Master of Science in Applied Clinical Informatics program (MSACI) is now accepting applications for Fall 2021.
Designed to accommodate working professionals, the program provides a 36-credit-hour curriculum in 21 months, with a coursework-intensive first year followed by a practicum and a mentored capstone project. The program emphasizes a deep theoretical and practical understanding of care processes, informatics concepts, information technologies, computer science, and the changing social, organizational and economic context in which health care is delivered.
MSACI is designed for working professionals who desire rigorous, practical informatics training: physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and professionals from related disciplines such as public health, health care policy, health information technology development, research informatics and hospital/clinic management.
The program is delivered primarily in an online format to accommodate distance learning for those working in health systems outside of Vanderbilt.
Early application deadline is Feb. 15. Final application deadline is April 30. For more information or to apply, please visit the MSACI website.
