Designed to accommodate working professionals, the Master of Science in Applied Clinical Informatics program (MSACI) 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.
The 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 in an online format to accommodate distance learning for those working in health systems outside of Vanderbilt.
Final application deadline is May 15. Applications are reviewed and admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. For more information or to apply, please visit the MSACI website.
