    I'm interested in pursuing a PhD in the area of health informatics and e-health. I'm wondering if people could comment on schools that offer similar programs. I'm at the looking at the University of Toronto program below:

    I'm currently doing my MPH and thought it would be a good way to merge my interest of health and technology.

    There are healthcare informatics programs at the following schools:

    -University of washington - seattle
    -university of minnesota
    -University of missouri
    -columbia university in new york
    -university of utah
    -stanford university
    - University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB)
    -Indiana university (bloomington and indianapolis)--- the healthcare informatics program is in indianapolis and has the internationally renowned REgenstrief institute with the Indiana University School of Medicine
    - vanderbilt university in nashville, tn

    there are probably more schools that offer health informatics than what's listed above

    you can go to teh web sites fo these above schools, you can also google them...

    Also check the American Medical Informatics Association at www.amia.org

    -- Hope it helps :)
