Majed Al Ameel, originally from Saudi Arabia, undertook the MSc in Health Informatics.
What made you choose MSc Health Informatics at Leeds?
As a Pharmacist who’s been working as a health informatics specialist for eight years, I wanted to enhance my knowledge and experience with an MSc degree in the field. I found very few courses available, but chose Leeds because of the variety of topics covered in the programme, the course structure and the academic expertise of those teaching and working at the Yorkshire Centre of Health Informatics. I also chose the University of Leeds for its outstanding reputation and the excellent location and ambience of the city.
What was the highlight of the programme?
The programme has empowered me with the knowledge, tools and techniques to gain a better understanding of the wider context of health informatics and to manage information technology projects in a complex environment such as the healthcare domain.
Would you recommend MSc Health Informatics to others?
Yes, definitely I will recommend the course to my colleagues and other people.
What do you plan to do after graduation?
After my graduation from Leeds, I have been promoted to Medical Informatics Manager at Prince Sultan Cardiac Centre, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I would now like to practise the valuable knowledge imparted to me by the teaching staff at the Yorkshire Centre for Health Informatics in the real world. Moreover, I want to benefit from the lessons learnt through well-established experience of the NHS in the field of health informatics in England and UK. My aim is to apply them within my organisation and in the Saudi context.
