Help Create Healthier Lives

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has a strong tradition of creating interdisciplinary programs that build on the tradition of the Wisconsin Idea. The Wisconsin Idea is one of the deepest and longest-held principles surrounding the University of Wisconsin: that education should influence people’s lives beyond the boundaries of the classroom. This guiding philosophy makes our programs, our faculty, and our students some of the best in the world. The “Idea” framework offers a set of principles that guide how we value integrity, egalitarianism, truth, and interpersonal trust.

The Clinical & Health Informatics degree embodies these guiding principles and is built upon the framework of engaged, active, and participatory learning:

  • Interdisciplinary experts working collaboratively across schools and a college:
    • School of Medicine and Public Health
    • College of Engineering
    • School of Nursing
    • School of Pharmacy
    • Wisconsin School of Business
  • Serving working adults eager to take their experience to the next level in the healthcare informatics space
  • Strong values about using data to serve our state, national, and world needs to create better ways for data-based decision making in healthcare
