Student Experience

The online Master of Science in Health Informatics & Analytics program at Tufts University School of Medicine offers a comprehensive learning experience that connects you to the people and ideas at the forefront of the health data field, from wherever you live.

The Online Learning Experience

Solving today’s healthcare issues will take teamwork. To collaborate effectively, our online students meet in live, face-to-face classes where they can discuss course work based on real-world concerns in the field.

Participate in weekly seminar-style classes where you will think critically and develop an understanding of emerging health and data concepts.

Complete interactive course work including video case studies, experiential work, and group assignments, on your own schedule.

Meet one-on-one with distinguished Tufts Public Health faculty to further discuss course content during office hours.

Collaborate with peers and learn from their diverse perspectives by completing group work and attending study groups together on our videoconferencing platform.

Immersion Experience

During the program, you will participate in a three-day immersion experience on the Tufts University campus in Boston, a global center for medicine and public health. At the immersion, you will be introduced to the capstone project and refine your project plan as you attend seminars on problem-solving and project management, taught by Health Informatics & Analytics faculty. You will also meet your peers in person during networking events.
