Welcome to History of Theory and Analysis Methods in Health Informatics

The objective of the course is to introduce and discuss important theories and methodological approaches to research in health informatics in a historical context.

Health informatics is a professional field situated in the intersection of health science, technology and social science. It can be traced back to the early 1950’s and has scientifically developed continuously and as a profession the latest 20 years. The historical trajectory of the field has had a decisive role of the scientific and professional activities of health informatics today, and should be recognized and acknowledged in all current research projects.

This course will present and discuss the history of the most prevalent theories and methodological approaches to health informatics research and development in an international perspective. The objective is to provide the participants with an insight and awareness of the field they research.
Furthermore the international faculty will discuss the students’ projects and provide feedback to their continued research.

Important information concerning PhD courses

We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
