USF Health’s Master of Science in Health Informatics is designed to give students a firm grounding in e-healthcare ethics.
“We try and expose our students to a diverse array of biomedical ethical issues in our courses to encourage students to assess their ethical viewpoints and, in the case of health informatics, help them analyze their responses to a variety of related ethical scenarios as part of their educational development and to prepare them for their future activities as health informatics professionals,” said Dr. Michael Barber, professor of the e-healthcare ethics course for USF’s informatics program.
