15 top ranked Universities to launch 100 new health courses, 30 specializations and two health degrees.
Coursera, the global online learning leader, has announced the launch of their health vertical—a broad portfolio of health content from the world’s top universities curated specifically to help address the acute shortage of skilled workers in the health industry and meet the demands of a digital health economy. The 100 new courses, 30 new specializations, and two public health-focused master’s degrees will provide learners with the skills they need to enter high demand jobs, particularly related to Health Informatics, Healthcare Management, and Public Health.
Coursera and top-ranked partners in health—including Columbia University, Emory University, Imperial College London, Johns Hopkins University, University of Colorado, University of Michigan and University of Minnesota —are committed to making high-quality content and healthcare education more widely accessible. The new portfolio of content which includes Specializations focused on Biostatistics, Population Health Management, Nursing Informatics, and Social Welfare Policy is designed to develop or supplement knowledge for those already working in the healthcare space or to provide a path to a career in healthcare.
The new Specializations will roll-out through 2019 and will be available for a subscription range of $39 to $79 per month. The two health-focused master’s degrees from Michigan and Imperial are accepting applications in January.
