Program description

By studying Medical Informatics, you will be responding to the ever-growing need for a sound scientific approach to knowledge and information in modern healthcare services.

Medical Informatics at the AMC-UvA: Unique in the Netherlands Medical Informatics (MI) is a discipline concerned with solving information-related problems in the medical and healthcare sectors. Medical informaticians are experts in information analysis, representation, system design, implementation and evaluation, rather than in developing the advanced technologies which underlie information systems. The Master's programme at the University of Amsterdam Academic Medical Centre (AMC-UvA) is a unique course in the Netherlands. A qualified Medical Informatician is able to identify, analyse, describe and solve medical information problems. Being able to select, synthesise and evaluate information science theories, models and methods, plays an important role. Improving the quality and outcome of medical treatment and enhancing the efficiency of the care process are at the heart of the MSc in Medical Informatics. The programme concentrates upon issues in two main areas. Medical treatment - in particular, decision-making and the support from information systems. Healthcare organisation and processes - the use of information technology in improving patient-care processes.
