Healthcare IT is about more than writing code and processing data. Our students and graduates are using information technology to give doctors fingertip access to patient charts, to bring powerful digital imaging to the operating room for real-time, lifesaving decisions, and to analyze ways to drive down the high cost of healthcare and record-keeping. At JCU, you’ll learn in high-tech labs, create projects in IBM Watson, and build an amazing resume through internships at world-renowned healthcare organizations and health tech startups – putting data to work for the world.
