Welcome to

The Joint Master’s Programme in Health Informatics (120 credits/2 years)

You will find our new updated programme website here: https://education.ki.se/student/joint-masters-programme-in-health-informatics

The Joint Master's Programme in Health Informatics is aimed at students who are interested in information technology and want to apply this to the medicine or healthcare fields. You will learn methods to make health care safer, more efficient and of higher quality through computer-based information and knowledge management.

This programme is given as a joint programme between Karolinska Institutet (Health Informatics Centre at the dept of LIME) and Stockholm University (Department of Computer and System Sciences (DSV) which means that some courses are at Karolinska Institutet and some at Stockholm University. After completing the programme students will receive a Master of Medical Science by Karolinska Institutet and a Master of Science by Stockholm University.

Since the programme is created for students with medical or technical backgrounds you will not only take courses to complement your skills (students with technical backgrounds take courses in basic medical sciences, health care organisation and management, while students with medical backgrounds learn basic computer and systems sciences) but you will also learn a lot from each other.

#metoo – Support for KI-students

Karolinska Institutet (KI) is an inclusive university with a good work- and study climate, free of discrimination, harassment, and other offensive discrimination. The study climate should be characterized by mutual respect between employees and students. Discrimination, harassment and other offensive treatment is a serious threat to health, well-being, study pleasure and opportunities for success. Such behaviour can never be accepted, and therefore KI works with active measures that involve preventive work and promote a good study environment

Information for you who have been exposed to, or has noted, sexual harassment or other offensive treatment at Karolinska Institutet can be found at: Discrimination and harassment
