Lisa's MMI Portfolio

Master of Science, Medical Informatics

What is a Medical Informaticist? Don’t feel badly if you haven’t heard of this specialty before. It’s a relatively new role which combines science, information technology and the practice of medicine.

Offered in partnership with the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University’s Master of Science in Medical Informatics program gives individuals with information technology backgrounds and clinically trained health professionals the knowledge and experience needed to apply their talents to careers in information services organizations within hospitals, health systems, academic environments, and the health systems and equipment industry. In the MMI program at Northwestern, information technology is brought into the clinical environment to create and analyze systems for the digital medical age. The curriculum focuses on the study and application of principles of information management, design, integration, implementation, and evaluation to enterprise-wide health care information systems. Graduates of Northwestern’s MMI program have the interdisciplinary knowledge and skills needed for leadership roles in the important field of health information technology.
