Masters of health administration vs Masters of Health Informatics

Hi everybody,
Just wondering if anyone has done a masters in health administration or masters of health informatics and what has that led to? Just looking for more information on these masters and what jobs these masters have lead people to, and the salary achieved from these masters. I have currently worked for a few years in the health care field as a MRT, and am looking to upgrade myself by doing one of these masters but am not sure which one is better.
Thanks in advance!

Depends on where you see your career moving towards, I know many allied health professionals who did MHA (paid) as part of their new manager duties as it was part of the requirements to hold their job

MHI was a joke in terms of content - but most of us ended up with pretty decent gigs after. Most folks ended up in project management, consulting and analyst roles.
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

Where did you go for MHI? Uoft or Uwaterloo?
Also if you do not mind me asking what is the salary for those kinds of jobs project management, consulting and analyst roles? Thanks!

UofT

Project managers are 80k or more. As an analyst, I made 65k, and at the same time I was consulting for $60/h. A few of my MRT and nursing friends ended up in senior analyst roles, making about 70-80k, while still putting in a few night/weekend shifts at the hospital.

Do some research on the digital health job market in Canada before opting for an MHI. It doesn't seem very inspiring

Hey, I'm a prospective applicant to UofT's MHI program. Do you have any advice for how to increase my IT/health informatics knowledge as I'm coming from a nursing background? Should I emphasize my nursing knowledge in my statement of interest to set me apart from other applicants? Thank you!
