Hello, it’s nice to meet everybody on http://www.healthinformaticsforum.com
My name is Jason and I am a student attending the University of Victoria in Health Information Science. With the growing field of Health Informatics I was inclined in searching for an online community in relations for my future career. As for reference, I am always interested in gaining new knowledge and with the help of your expertise in health informatics; I believe I found the right community.
Best wishes and Thanks for your time,
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 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...
