Duke School of Medicine to Offer the Master of Management in Clinical Informatics (MMCi) Program in Fall 2014

The Master of Management in Clinical Informatics (MMCi), previously launched in the Fuqua School of Business in 2010, is now part of the Duke University School of Medicine. This move aligns the innovative curriculum with Duke University’s thought leadership in clinical informatics research and clinical care in the Duke Medicine. The one-year degree program, with an interdisciplinary approach to health informatics management, draws upon Duke faculty expertise in health informatics, healthcare business management, education, and clinical care to provide students the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills needed to meet the increasing demand for leaders who can manage the challenges created by the rapid expansion of health care technology.

The MMCi program seeks to prepare graduates for managerial and executive positions such as chief medical information officer, chief information officer, implementation manager, business analyst, and management consultant. Graduates of the MMCi program will fill leadership roles in operationalizing, managing, and evaluating health IT in a variety of settings including academia, government, and industry.

Victor J. Dzau, MD, Chancellor for Health Affairs at Duke University and President and Chief Executive Officer of Duke University Health System (DUHS) commented that “The MMCi program is an important component of the Duke Medicine mission to transform medicine and health locally and globally. The unique curriculum will produce much needed skills and will be seen as an
innovative approach to meeting the workforce needs identified as critical by the National Coordinator for Health IT and the Institute of Medicine.”

The MMCi program will continue to be a joint collaboration between Duke Medicine and the Fuqua School of Business.
