There is no one route into health informatics. Individuals can enter the area from different starting points and at different levels. You can enter straight from school, after college or university or from other jobs in industry, in other areas of health and care, or from elsewhere.
The broad entry levels are:
- after school or further education
- following graduation or with similar experience
- at Masters level or equivalent experience.
If you come into the NHS with an appropriate ICT qualification, you can develop your career in this area by gaining relevant experience and qualifications.
Equally, if you join without formal qualifications and wish to progress, you’ll be encouraged to take the necessary training for your chosen career path. An ICT Support Administrator can gain appropriate qualifications as ICT Assistant Technician and then as a Technician.
