Abstract

23-25 April 2003 In 1999, University College London inaugurated a programme of graduate part-time Health Informatics courses to support the UK National Health Service's information strategy (Information for Health). The programme has attracted students from across the UK and abroad, with a diverse range of backgrounds and skills, and has proved a challenging and rewrding experience for students and tutors alike. The modular programme aims to provide a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of Health Informatics and addresses important application areas. As we move towards our fifth intake of students, we are in the process of evaluating our programme and carrying out a follow-up study of our graduates to see how the experience has impacted on their career development and their professional practice.
