    Fall 2018 Masters of Health Informatics

    I'm not sure why the courses haven't been updated on ACORN, but the MHI website itself has a schedule laid out here: http://ihpme.utoronto.ca/academics/pp/mhi/handbook/timetables/ Part of me (... all of me) hopes this is not final. 6 1/2 hours between 3 hour classes on Wednesday... not to mention class at 9am Thursday the next morning. Really?

    Anyone hear anything about when we'll get a class schedule? Going to be travelling over the summer and need to arrange some things for the year so sooner is better for me ?

    Same here! I dropped off my signed offer in person because I happen to live fairly close and just wanted to make sure it actually got there, and Zoe mentioned that we'd hopefully learn more about what needed to happen next in the next couple weeks. Also, I know this isn't a research-based program, but did anyone happen to go to the IHPME Research Day last week? It sounded quite interesting but I had a different work-related symposium that week that I had to attend.

    I got an e-mail from admissions.sgs@utoronto.ca regarding something about a JOINid. Activate that and then you just use the same ID to access ACORN. I think my previous post suggested that the process for getting on ACORN was done automatically, which it wasn't. I just remember following the instructions to activate it because I got the email right as my application went through and my brain was just like 'uhhhhhhh sure, I guess activating something would be important', so sorry for any confusion!

    To add to this, they have a timetable for current students at http://ihpme.utoronto.ca/academics/pp/mhi/handbook/timetables/, and I imagine next year will be similar (at least I hope so, a Friday off never hurt anyone!). Also I would be inclined to follow-up if you can't get into ACORN at this point, I've been able to access the system after applying since mid February (though of course nothing showed up until being accepted).

    Anyone that is considering UofT have any insight regarding working while you're in the program (non-executive stream)? The FAQs section of their website seems to really suggest we don't... and while I could probably get away with not working for a year, I would prefer to.

    Thank you very much (and congrats to you as well)! At this moment I am leaning more towards UofT. Everyone in this thread has been a great source of comfort in these past 2 months of sustained panic, so I hope I get to meet some of you soon!

    I got a similar vibe from Waterloo; they didn't say much about UofT but did say they had a relatively greater emphasis on the engineering and design behind information systems. For the curious, if you take a look at the course calendars for both programs and you can definitely see it there as well. UofT has a few courses that relate more to project management, and Waterloo has some room for electives and a lot of options are of statistics/comp sci related. http://ihpme.utoronto.ca/academics/pp/mhi/handbook/timetables/ https://uwaterloo.ca/public-health-and-health-systems/future-graduate-students/professional-programs/master-health-informatics/curriculum

    Congratulations to everyone with the good news so far! Time for me to start mindlessly refreshing the SGS portal and my e-mail D':

    Yes! I've actually accepted my offer to Waterloo already (and for a variety of reasons am currently leaning ever-so-slightly toward their all-online format... though the networking at UofT would be excellent) but I really wish I could get some closure from UofT after going through the somewhat daunting interview process. Waterloo wouldn't extend my decision deadline :\ The sooner I get more details from UofT the sooner I can sort out living/work/general life stuff that will influence my decision quite a bit. Super nervous.

    It appears based on a previous post (quoted below) that '35 get in' actually means that's about how many people actually accept their offers and register? At least I hope so, because that would mean they invite more people than that and I imagine many applicants are applying to multiple programs/schools.

    Just hold tight! They did just finish interviews late last week, so between that and what Zoe told me about the end of the month, I don't think it's worth too much of your time to worry too much about it for at least the next week or two. Best of luck!

    For UofT? Nothing yet o_o I was told end of April was when I should be expecting anything at all. I did get an acceptance from Waterloo MHI, and was waitlisted by Western MPH both in mid-March.
