Getting the right healthcare information… to the right person… in the right format… at the right time

Why UW

There is a natural fit for the University of Wisconsin to champion Clinical & Health Informatics. The “Wisconsin Idea” is based in how a UW education should influence and improve people’s lives beyond the university setting – in providing information, exercising technical skill, doing research, and solving problems to improve health and quality of life for all citizens. This guiding philosophy offers a set of principles that make our programs, our faculty, and our students some of the best in the world.

“This has been the school I’ve been working toward and dreaming of my whole life. I’m so grateful the professors work as hard as I am to make sure I succeed. I really feel like the professors care as much as I do. It’s refreshing and reassuring. I’ve been taking the opportunity to utilize the virtual office hours and my professors have been wonderful in explaining things and providing valuable insight!”
