MSc ehealth and MHI Admissions Strategy Guide

On this page, you'll find links to application strategy guides for two most popular digital health informatics graduate programs in Canada - McMaster University's MSc ehealth and University of Toronto's (UofT) Master of Health Informatics (MHI).

These guides are written from my past experience in successful admissions to both McMaster MSc ehealth and UofT MHI, my current experience as an ehealth professional working in the Canadian healthcare system, as well as my hundreds hours put into researching and strategizing every detail of each application component.

Before you consider applying to these graduate degrees, you want to read about a brief introductory comparison between the MSc ehealth and MHI programs in this blog post: https://blog.mingli.ca/mcmaster-msc-ehealth-vs-utoronto-mhi/

Once you have read the comparison and have some understanding of the programs, I suggest you start learning about admissions from the official websites for McMaster MSc ehealth admissions and UofT MHI admissions. Once you have an idea of what you need, come over to this page to read about strategies for each application component in detail.

💡
After reading the guides, if you still need more help, I'm offering 1-on-1 application editing service where I will help edit your application.
