Study Health Informatics at Otago

Postgraduate parade

Please note: No new enrolments are being accepted for the Postgraduate Diploma in Health Informatics. Health Informatics is currently in redevelopment and is intended to be offered again in 2020 (subject to approval).


Electronic information systems are revolutionising health-care practice, research and education. Efficient management of information improves patient satisfaction and makes time available for new aspects of practice and for learning. Many health-care professionals realise they need skills in finding and using information, and in assessing information systems.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Health Informatics (PGDipHealInf) is intended for health care professionals whose prime focus may be in clinical care delivery, management, education, quality assurance, information systems, or research. Admission may be possible for those with significant health-care work experience but without an undergraduate qualification.
