Internship Course Information

The M.S. Health Informatics and Analytics curriculum includes two substantive applied learning requirements: the internship (midpoint) and the capstone.

Internship Requirements

Before entering into an internship for credit, students must have completed a minimum of 12 hours of graduate coursework in the Health Informatics and Analytics program including HADM 6100 and HCIP 6380. Students are directed to the Canvas Health Informatics and Analytics Internship Project Course Site for full details. Students should plan for the internship at least one full semester in advance of commencing it as many internship sites have substantial administrative prerequisites to complete prior to placement. For further details, contact the program director.

Students who are planning to take the Internship Project and are searching for additional information should refer to the following Zoom recording of the Summer Internship Panel Seminar from February 6th, 2024.


Students who have secured an internship placement must first fill out the Internship Proposal and Mentor Contact Form. Submitted proposals will be reviewed weekly by the Faculty Directors. Students will be contacted if additional information is needed. The Director of Student Services will issue authorization to register for HCIP 6400 if and when the proposal is approved.

Please fill out the Internship Proposal below. Choose the semester in which you are planning to take the internship.


Normally taken in the final semester, all students complete this capstone course that engages them in mentored real-world informatics and analytics projects. Students must have completed their internship and secure permission from the Graduate Program Director to register for this course.
