A variety of excellent job opportunities are available and continue to expand in each of our three core areas of focus: clinical / health informatics, bioinformatics & computational biology, and health information management. Exciting careers in all three fields can be found in industry, academia, government, and private consulting.
Health informatics careers will continue to grow as the healthcare industry strives to implement EHR systems and advance further into the digital age. An additional 37,700 jobs are predicted to open up in this emerging field by the year 2020.
There is also a high demand for bioinformaticists and computational biologists with the skills to develop and use the algorithms and tools to help us analyze, integrate and interpret genomic data. Bioinformatics is not just a viable career choice - it is one of the most critical areas of biomedicine today.
