Introductions Thread

Hi Everyone,

This thread is to introduce yourself on the site and to let people know about your background.

I'm a medical doctor by training and a Health Informatics researcher and consultant based in Oxfordshire in the UK. I'm currently working with the University of Oxford on a health informatics research project based in Kenya and running the MOOC on this website.

I spent the previous 7 years in New Zealand as a Lecturer in Health Informatics at the University of Otago and as a Senior Research Fellow in Health Informatics at the National Institute for Health Innovation at the University of Auckland.

Cheers!

Chris

      • Hi Bhagyalakshmi,

        Nice to hear from you, and glad to know that you are also interested in this field.

        Well honestly speaking I am not aware of any scholarships as such in this course ( It may be possible that, you may get sponsorship from your college/University or any hospitals ?)

        You can get MSc. in Health Informatics from Australia, U.K, USA, or Newzeland and several other countries also.Fees is everywhere nearly same as such with minor variations, the difference is in the living cost according to my view.

        I am doing MSc from City University London and I would suggest you to go through there website and also of some other Universities (find out by goggling ) to get some idea about the course structure, content, future prospects and than we can discuss further.

        For City University the website address is

        Regards

        • Hi Bhagyalakshmi,

          I am Puspa. Informatics study can cover a wide area of topics. It would help if you asked around to find out the type of skills that would serve you well. There are many MS courses offered but the modules can differ. IMIA WG1 group has defined a set of skills but again it will depend on what you need.
          There are online degrees for your convinience too.

          Cheers / Puspa

  • Thank you for this initiative

    I am a M.D., PhD student. During last 13 years I practiced combining scientific aspects and achievements of Biomedical Informatics and the industrial software development methods. I think this approach is critical toward successful real solutions to solve real problems. By now it seems that there is still a huge gap between scientific departments and solution providers.

    I have been
    1- doing researching (EHR, Neural Networks, HL7 standard, Knowledge representation, Medical Expert Systems and Usability of EHR),
    2- consultant to HIS and EHR projects (Software architecture and design and strategic planning for technology employment)
    3- developing EHR applications and disease registry

    Regards
