Lisa Llewellyn, originally from the Caribbean island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, pursued the MSc in Health Informatics.
What made you choose MSc Health Informatics at Leeds?
The University of Leeds was my first choice for its well rounded Health Informatics programme. I have always had a passion for the healthcare field and after the completion of my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering, it was a natural progression to merge them. After gaining experience as the Project Manager from implementing a National Health Information System for the Ministry of Health in my country, this reaffirmed my commitment to pursue an MSc in Health Informatics.
What was the highlight of the programme?
The highlight of the course was the individual attention provided by my supervisor and the other lecturers for the various modules as well as my final thesis.
Would you recommend MSc Health Informatics to others? Why?
I would definitely recommend this programme to others. It has been a rewarding experience as some of the courses have a healthcare focus, but can be used in any environment. In addition, the programme prepares you for the real world for those lacking the experience and exposes the experienced candidates to industry best practices to help improve their skills in the workplace.
What do you plan to do after graduation?
I will rejoin the Ministry of Health as a Systems Analyst/Project Manager at St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
