I am pleased to be officially Adjunct Faculty for the Kent State University Health Informatics Masters and Certificate program. This unique online program is under the school of Information Architecture and Knowledge Management, meaning it has close ties with both library science and nursing. I will be teaching Clinical Analytics in the May-June 2013 time frame and until then designing the course.
The program description states, “This integrated discipline features specialty domains in management science, management engineering principles, health care delivery and public health, patient safety, information science and computer technology.”
The program is completely online which will be a new challenge for me but is certainly becoming common for health and medical informatics programs appealing to those already in the field. The course fits well with my recent experiences of book chapters in Health Informatics and Wireless Health, the latter of which I developed video lectures. Also, my upcoming presentation at AMIA on Clinical Research Informatics Infrastructure.
And since clinical analytics is my daily focus in clinical research informatics, I am looking forward to condensing my knowledge into this course. Convergence within one’s career is not common – I am fortunate to have these opportunities come together.
