The overall aim of the programme is to offer an opportunity for professionals in healthcare and related disciplines to develop the necessary knowledge, understanding and competencies needed to function more effectively, and to master the advanced use of information technology skills in healthcare settings.
This programme is the first of its kind in Hong Kong, and it aims to equip healthcare professionals and graduates from health-related or information technology- or engineering-related backgrounds with advanced information technology skills for use in healthcare settings. The course content addresses the needs of healthcare providers and allows for introduction, re-orientation and/or conversion to a field that is of direct relevance to the student's place of employment.
Students need to complete 3 Compulsory Subjects, 2 Core Subjects and 2 Elective Subjects plus a Dissertation (alternatively, any 3 Core/Elective Subjects can replace the Dissertation).
