Minor in Healthcare Informatics
The University Minor in Healthcare Informatics (HI) provides the breadth of learning in health informatics for students to gain a competitive advantage in a healthcare setting, and allows students to extend their interests in MedTech, healthcare systems and its relevant technologies as well as data science. HI Minor is hosted by Science, Mathematics and Technology (SMT) Cluster.
Planning for Minor Study
- This Minor is open only to eligible SUTD students matriculated from AY2020 onwards.
- Students interested in pursuing minor programme(s) should meet an academic advisor to formulate a study plan. Enrollment into all courses are subject to availability.
- Subsequently, students are required to track their own progress towards completing the minor programme(s) as per the study plan formulated.
- For all minors, students must formally declare their intention to the Office of Student Administration (OSA) and the pillars/clusters involved (i.e. student’s pillar and SMT) during the declaration period (between the end of Term 3 and one week before the start of Term 4) via student portal. Students should be note that the add/drop period and related policies apply to minor-related and additional fifth subjects (if any).
- The minor will be accorded upon successful completion of the required subjects by Term 8. No extension beyond Term 8 is allowed.
- Students who declared earlier but decided not to pursue the minor programme(s) are required to inform OSA in writing. Should the student who declared earlier decide to pursue a different minor, the student is required to inform OSA in writing. Only requests before the end of Term 5’s add/drop period will be entertained and such requests will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
- All other students must declare that they have successfully completed the minor programme(s) and provide any necessary documentation to OSA before graduation in order for the minor(s) to be reflected in their transcript.
Students must have passed all twelve (12) Freshmore subjects at the point of declaring their intention to pursue a minor.
