Reason to enroll in this program
In recent years there is a surge in availability and usage of the smart devices making available large quantity of health data, meaningful utilisation of which has become very essential. Similar is the case with various government / non-government health programs, having enormous data with lack of consequential usage in decision making of health policies. PhD in Population Health Informatics would enable me to put across evidence based, data-driven informatics solutions to address various public health issues.
