Course info


The role of health informatics in the delivery of patient care is becoming more complex, with job opportunities emerging in nontraditional settings. The University of Illinois at Chicago has recognized these shifts in the health informatics field and developed four online graduate-level health informatics certificates to address the growing need for specialized health informatics professionals.

Each standalone, 12- or 13-credit-hour certificate will focus on one health informatics specialty area: fundamentals, leadership, health data science and mobile health. After completing your certificate program, you can apply earned credits directly to our Master of Science in Health Informatics (MS HI).


The University of Illinois at Chicago’s mission is to advance the quality and efficiency of healthcare by improving the process to generate, manage and communicate biomedical data. To support our mission and help advance the health informatics industry, we’ve developed four specialized post-baccalaureate certificates in the following areas:

  • Health Informatics Fundamentals
  • Health Data Science Informatics
  • Leadership in Health Informatics
  • Mobile Health Informatics

Each standalone health informatics certificate is designed for self-motivated, experienced healthcare or IT professionals who have already earned their bachelor’s degree. Coursework emphasizes the development of a competitive skill set grounded in healthcare information sciences, which you can achieve through hands-on experience with workflow tools such as Visio, OmniGraffle and LucidChart, data visualization tools such as Tableau and programming languages such as Excel, R, R-Studio, HL7, JSON, jq and Linux command line (CentOS/RedHat).

Courses completed as part of the certificate program may be applied toward the Master of Health Informatics (MSHI) if the student is later admitted into the program. However, successful completion of the certificate program does not guarantee admission into the degree program.

By completing this certificate program, you’ll be able to:

  • Collaboratively communicate with other healthcare and IT professionals
  • Apply managerial and leadership skills to projects that maximize the utilization of HIT
  • Assess the capabilities, limitations, and risk/benefit tradeoffs of certain HIT applications
  • Identify organizational factors inhibiting the proper use of HIT and develop strategies to overcome them
  • Evaluate existing or proposed communication systems to ensure they support your organization’s goals
  • Adapt systems analysis techniques to accommodate the complex nature of HIT needs
  • Integrate critical thinking skills with published data to remain current with emerging HIT issues
