Host an MHI Practicum Student
The practicum is the applied learning component of the Master of Health Informatics education. From May to August, every MHI student participates in a full-time (600 hour/ 37.5 hours per week) professional practicum placement that counts for 20% of degree credits (2 FCE).
The practicum provides learners with the opportunity to build on MHI course learning and to employ related problem-solving skills. By the start of practicum, students will have completed more than 250 hours of in-class graduate instruction, in addition to workshops and projects.
