Available as a joint degree option for Drake pharmacy students or as a stand-alone program for current clinicians, healthcare administrators, and information technology workers looking to advance their career, the program provides students with the opportunity to collaborate effectively with data scientists, statisticians, and healthcare professionals in interdisciplinary healthcare settings.
Graduates of the MS HIA program will be particularly agile in the fast-changing healthcare landscape, and well-positioned to take on innovative roles in the health care information technology field.
