Certificate in Public Health Informatics

Targeting public health professionals, The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, is pleased to announce that the Public Health Informatics Training Program is accepting applications. This program results in a Maryland State-approved Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in "Public Health Informatics."

The goal of the program is to offer training in methods and concepts of health informatics and health information technology for application to public health. It is designed for current and future public health professionals who wish to develop expertise or specialization in this area. This certificate program is available completely online. Individuals residing in the Mid-Atlantic region may also take selected courses on site.

As part of the Johns Hopkins University-wide health informatics training, another certificate program is available for medical, nursing, information technology, software engineers, and clinical management professionals without public health experience. This other program is hosted at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Information on this other program for professionals without public health experience can be found at the School of Medicine's Informatics Website.
