“As a mom of four children, a flexible online education was the best choice. I chose the University of Cincinnati because it allowed me to set up my clinicals close to home. I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. The faculty made time to meet with me one-on-one using Skype and I could schedule time with proctors for my tests.”

“As a physician champion without an IT background, I realized that I wasn't prepared for the role. I enrolled in the Master of Health Informatics program. It delivered the skill sets I needed to be a health IT leader and to go on to become board certified in Clinical Informatics. I highly recommend University of Cincinnati's Master of Health Informatics program.”
