McMaster’s eHealth MSc program is a unique healthcare graduate program that immerses you in the world of digital health informatics. Offered through a collaboration by three prestigious McMaster Faculties and Schools – the Faculty of Health Sciences, the Faculty of Engineering, and the DeGroote School of Business – the eHealth MSc builds on theoretical foundations in healthcare, information technology and business. An 8-month internship offers firsthand perspective on how these fields intersect in the transformation of modern healthcare delivery and management.

You do not need an information technology degree to enroll in the eHealth MSc. Our interdisciplinary approach to learning lets you identify your area of study and pursue this through elective coursework and research. The program’s flexibility means that your academic experience can be as broad or as focused as you like. Modes of study include full time course-based, full time thesis-based, and part-time options.
