A Social Network for Health Informatics Professionals and Students
I am currently a student working towards my Bachelor of Science in Health Information Technology at the University of Victoria, B.C, Canada. I have taken two years of general science and one year of Health Informatics, and I am currently taking some summer classes.
As someone recently introduced to this area of study, does anyone have any advice or words of wisdom?
I also was wondering if anyone could tell me about the different directions I could go in terms of employment? I would prefer something with some biology/science involved.
My name is Stan, and I am currently in school for a second degree in Health Informatics and Computer Science at University of Victoria. My first degree was in biochemistry, I decided to change into Hinf field, as I feel the job opportunities were more abundant and more enjoyable for me. I look forward to learning more about the field and meeting everyone on here!

I am a full time student and dad at University of Phoenix studying to get a B.A in Healthcare Information System in 2013; I already have my A.A in Healthcare Administration. I do have some experience in fixing and upgrading computers and teaching an Introduction to Computer class in my church. I originally lived in Washington D.C but moved to North Carolina hoping to start my new career here. I look forward to picking the brains of those that already in the field of Healthcare information systems so I can know what to study and what to focus on so I can get my feet in the door of a new career.
I look forward to talking to you soon.
I am Athar and I am from Pakistan.
When I was at medical school I always thought of how easy it is to link all data and each and every department in a hospital electronically but no one even care. I was unaware of such field then but now as I know I am enrolling in to Msc Health informatics.
I am good at computers and programming from my childhood and now as I am already a medical doctor, It is best choice for me to pursue my career in health informatics.
It is nice to know about someone from Pakistan interested in Health Informatics...
Robert Reed...I've worked in a student health clinic at the University of Texas in Austin for nearly 15 years. Mostly I've been purely IT but lately I'm making the shift to more Health IT centric job roles including working directly with the clinicians and other staff in the clinic to understand their workflow and how IT can assist with that.
