McMaster’s eHealth MSc program is a unique healthcare graduate program that immerses students in the world of digital health informatics. Offered through a collaboration of three 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.

Our interdisciplinary approach to learning encourages students to identify an area of study and pursue this through elective coursework and research. The program’s flexibility means that students’ academic experience can be as broad or as focused as they like. Modes of study include full time course-based, full time thesis-based, and part-time options.

Full time students participate in an 8-month paid internship which offers them firsthand perspective on how the fields of healthcare, information technology and business intersect in the transformation of modern healthcare delivery and management.

Internships run from May – December each year. The roles students are hired for vary from research, change, and business analysts, project managers and coordinators to software developers. Our employer partners come from the public and private sectors including hospitals, government agencies, non-profits, educational institutions, as well as start-ups.
