The consortium has collaborated with other universities and multiple state organizations to provide students and health professionals with informatics and technology training to provide more effective ways to manage modern technology, increase the number of minority health professionals and students trained in informatics and technology, and expand the public health workforce.
The University of Texas at Houston School of Biomedical Informatics and the School of Public Health is excited to lead the Gaining Equity in Training for Public Health Informatics and Technology (GET PHIT) consortium.
The Introduction to Public Health Informatics course will introduce learners to the field of health informatics as applied to the multi-disciplinary study of public health. Concepts from computer science and information science will be used to show how informaticians enrich our understanding of health administration, epidemiology, environmental science, and social and behavioral sciences. Learners will be introduced to the field's history, key terms and concepts, applications of informatics in public health, and common informatics software.
