HINF 6950 - Practicum


(3 sem. cr.) Through the practicum, students have an opportunity to apply and integrate the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the MS in Health Informatics program of study and further develop key professional competencies. Students engage in a supervised field experience, which they align to their academic and professional goals. Supervision by an on-site preceptor involved in the planning or conduct of a clinical research study is a critical component of the practicum. The on-site supervisor and the course instructor monitor and evaluate students’ performance throughout the entire practicum experience. Students are required to complete 120 hours of practicum work. They must also participate in an accompanying online seminar course and begin to develop an ePortfolio based on assigned professional development activities.
