As indicated above, the number of courses accepted varies for each program, so check with the advisors for these programs to confirm any programmatic constraints. Acceptance of course credit for programs at other institutions is at the discretion of advisors at those institutions. If you are interested in any of the listed graduate programs, please be sure to consult with your graduate program's academic advisor regarding minimum scores needed for the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or possible equivalent admissions tests such as the GMAT or MAT.
UWF does not currently have any plans to offer a graduate degree in the field of medical informatics. Alternatively, the focus of our certificate program is to provide high quality and cost-effective hands-on training for those currently working in the health care arena and for students who are interested in becoming involved in the decision-making in medical informatics at various levels. The partnerships we have established above with other programs at UWF are designed to enhance or create interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate degrees that address national workforce needs.
Both undergraduate and graduate courses taken as part of the Certificate in Medical Informatics program are part of the accreditation UWF has with SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools). For the current status of UWF's SACS accreditation, see our FAQs.
Graduate courses are also part of the accreditation UWF has with CEPH (Council on Education for Public Health), for those students applying the courses to the online Master of Public Health program. For the current status of UWF's CEPH accreditation, see our Masters of Public Health program.
