Careers in Global Health

Opportunities at UCSF Institute for Global Health Sciences

Project Manager, Global Health Informatics

Information - Req 52714BR
The Global Health Informatics Project Manager is a critical role to the strategic growth of the health informatics portfolio in Global Strategic Information (GSI). It is increasingly critical that health information is collected at the clinical level with ease, ensuring high quality data. This information must be easily accessible at the clinic, local, regional and national levels. Integrating health informatics into all projects to create platforms for data collection, analysis, and use allows the appropriate staff to use and interpret the data to improve programs and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Furthermore, health informatics may be able to solve health problems that cannot be solved in any other way, for example tracking lab specimens between sites. This position will be integrally involved in all GSI health informatics projects and will lead and support current projects, as well as pursue new opportunities for funding and expansion.
