About Us

The Division of Health Sciences Informatics is an independent academic unit in the School of Medicine and is overseen by the Vice Dean for Education. High quality research and training are central to the mission of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and to the Division of Health Sciences Informatics. Through research and practice in health sciences informatics, it is our goal to contribute significantly to the body of knowledge and expertise available to public health and healthcare practitioners, and to researchers in this rapidly growing field. Our programs, built on a core set of principles, provide students the knowledge and skills to lead in this world-wide effort. Students learn in an environment enriched by Johns Hopkins' world-renowned experience in research, clinical care and public health, as well as the wide array of professional, government, global and private-sector resources in our mid-Atlantic region.

The approach to Health Sciences Informatics training at Johns Hopkins is interdisciplinary. Although housed in the School of Medicine, the Division of Health Sciences Informatics partners with the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the School of Nursing, and divisions throughout Hopkins to benefit from informatics expertise in specialized areas of medicine and public health.

The Division invites applicants from a range of disciplines including clinical care, public health, the nursing sciences and biology, as well as from cognate fields such as computer, library and information sciences. Our applicant pool typically includes a number of physicians and candidates holding a PhD or master's degree who wish to develop expertise in the field of Health Sciences Informatics.
