About The Programme

Digital technology has been driving a revolution in healthcare. The convergence of digital technologies with health, healthcare, living and society offer real opportunities to improve medical outcomes and enhance efficiency. The fast-moving digital health tools (such as wearable devices, telehealth, telemedicine and mobile health) have the potential to improve physicians and patients relationship. The tools help to accelerate the diagnostic process and permit artificial intelligence to be used to provide accurate treatment recommendation – such options empowering patients to be more engaged with and proactive about their health besides encouraging preventive care through an increased focus on nutrition, exercise and wellness via digital health tools which help to better manage chronic conditions outside of traditional care settings.

IMU aims to equip students with essential digital health skills in both ICT and health science knowledge and competencies. Students undergo a robust curriculum that involves project-based learning activities and coursework, which offer a well-grounded and theoretically-informed training for the development in digital health.

What makes this programme unique is the fact that it is delivered by a multidisciplinary team of experts from the field of computing and health sciences. Also, the programme is designed for the students from science and non-science to embark in health related careers.
