BSHS in Medical Informatics | Montgomery College Crosswalk

This is the recommended program of study for students planning to obtain a Montgomery College associate's degree and transfer to GW to complete the Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (BSHS) in Medical Informatics.

Medical Informatics has emerged as a new field of study that bridges human-computer interactions in the health care space, as well as how the data we collect in these settings can be leveraged to improve patient safety, outcomes, and quality.  Graduates of the BSHS in Medical Informatics Program are well prepared to utilize their knowledge of electronic health records and databases within clinical settings.
