Master of Science in Clinical Informatics Management

Developing Leaders to Transform Health Care


The Master of Science in Clinical Informatics Management (MCiM) is a 12-month management program for working professionals seeking to become leaders in harnessing digital innovations to deliver high-quality, cost-effective health care.

Uniquely blending Stanford’s renowned expertise across medicine, technology, and business, MCiM is the only interdisciplinary program on the West Coast designed for current and emerging leaders in health care and technology – early- to mid-career professionals, physicians, clinicians, faculty, researchers, and medical students, and recent college graduates.

MCiM is one of only two programs at Stanford that offers both the rigor of a Stanford professional education and the flexible format that accommodates an active work schedule. The program features in-person classes held at Stanford every other weekend.

Students will gain core business and technology competencies as part of a diverse, collaborative educational environment, learning how to apply business models, clinical informatics tools, as well as ethical insights to the digital transformation of medicine. As a part of a management program, students will be prepared to design, implement, and lead digital innovations in health systems, life sciences firms, and healthcare-focused technology organizations.

Applications for the 2021-2022 academic year will be available in Autumn 2020.
