The Division of Health Sciences Informatics is the academic home in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine for informatics researchers in clinical and public health. The Division has primary faculty as well as about 30 faculty with secondary appointments throughout the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, Engineering, and elsewhere. These faculty have homes in the Center for Population Health IT, and other units. Research includes computer science (pluripotential data storage, decision modeling), clinical informatics (decision support), public health (population-based decision support), and others. The Division houses an active teaching program, with two master’s degree programs (Applied and Research), a post-baccalaureate certificate program, and a PhD program focused on clinical reengineering through informatics and on data science.
