Post Graduate Diploma Course in Health Informatics
The PG Diploma in Health Informatics is a full-time course over 12 months that equips students with a range of skills and an understanding of the health context in order to produce professionals capable of using innovative technology to make a significant contribution to improving healthcare. The programme takes a strong information systems perspective ? building transferable skills in areas such as soft systems, process modelling and strategy development and bringing these to focus on the health domain. Healthcare demand throughout the world is exceeding supply and the need for radical solutions has never been greater. Globally, IT is providing innovative approaches and transforming healthcare. The NHS and leading multinationals are making unprecedented investments in technology. These organisations recognise that there is a critical skills shortage; there is a high demand for technical and business graduates who have additional health informatics qualifications. The PGDip in Health Informatics at Leeds helps students develop the skills needed to make a difference. The Yorkshire Centre for Health Informatics (YCHI) has a strong regional and national reputation and is actively engaged in delivering training, skills, research and development to the NHS and a network of national and international software suppliers.
