General Guidance

Program progression

The Health Informatics and Analytics program follows a progressive course sequence. See the current student manual for full details. Students admitted to the program do not need permits to take core courses. Students do need permits for the Internship and Capstone and for select elective courses. To receive a permit for an HCIP or DSBA coded course, contact Carly Mahedy with the following information: 

  • Student ID #
  • Course Title
  • Course Registration Number(CRN)- 5 digits

The program will evolve to meet current industry needs. You can find current course offerings on my.uncc.edu under Banner Self-Service. Click here for the course descriptions or look in the Graduate School Catalog

Not sure which courses to take?

The curriculum is designed for students to flow from the foundational to the core to the selective requirements. Selectives, the internship, and the capstone all have prerequisites that reinforce that sequence. Students unsure about the timing and suitability of electives should contact their academic advisor or the program staff. The best person to help you decide which courses to take is your academic advisor (the program director serves as the backup advisor for all students). To verify your assigned advisor, PSM Students should access my.uncc.edu, Degree Works (Carly Mahedy is the default advisor for certificate students). 


Class Schedules

The Health Informatics and Analytics schedules most required classes in the late afternoon, early evening, or weekend hours to facilitate access to working professinoals. 

The schedule of classes is found online in Banner Self Service. View the University Academic Calendar for each semester's registration deadlines.

Professional Development Opportunities

The Health Informatics and Analytics program coordinates efforts with the Data Science Initiative Student Organization (DSI SO) to offer discipline focused professional development and networking opportunities. DSI SO also appoints a student representative to the Health Informatics and Analytics Program Committee, the program's faculty governance structure, giving students direct access to and participation in the continuous quality improvement of the program. 

The PSM program works closely with the Center for Graduate Life to provide professional development opportunities tailored to the unique needs of graduate and professional students.  A wide variety of free workshops are offered regularly on topics including professional speaking, resume writing, and career preparation throughout the semester.


Conference Travel

The department offers professional development travel awards for interested students who are in the Professional Science Masters Program. Students will be informed about upcoming conferences during the semester.
