Proactive Health Informatics Ph.D. Requirements

Students who graduate from the Proactive Health Informatics programs in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University understand how to combine cutting edge, innovative technologies with the latest in data analytics to design, implement, and evaluate technologies to help people better understand, manage, and improve their health. Students increase their impact in their research community and the world by empowering patients outside of the clinical setting where people live, work, and play.

The Proactive Health Informatics Ph.D. programs consist of a rigorous course sequence that introduce students to the fundamentals of design, implementation, data analytics, and evaluation. Students choose to be part of the Design or Data cluster, selecting electives that fit their interests. Students tailor their degree with an emphasis on a particular health domain.

We also recommend consulting the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering Bulletin 2018-2019 (use the tabs on the left) and the University Graduate School Bulletin 2017-2018 (use the tabs on the top and the left) for more detailed information about these requirements.

Our faculty are also happy to supervise students pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science who want to conduct research in Proactive Heath Informatics.
