UC Davis Extension, the continuing and professional education arm of the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) has a new certificate program in health informatics available exclusively online.

The 18-unit program explores the health informatics field and how the acquisition, storage, retrieval and use of information can play a critical role in enhancing the quality of care, reducing the costs of delivery and addressing population health issues, it says.

Designed for those with prior experience in a health-related setting, the program complements the master’s program at UC Davis, and is intended to provide a meaningful education option for working professionals who cannot commit to a full-time, residential program or who need to come up to speed more quickly due to workplace demands.

For more information or to enroll, visit www.extension.ucdavis.edu/healthinformatics or call (800) 752-0881.
