CHIP draws faculty, health care professionals and students from across the UNC campus to conduct basic and translational research — and to offer graduate training in health informatics for scientists across the disciplines and for clinicians in medicine, nursing, public health, dentistry and pharmacy.

CHIP offers certificates, a master's degree, and a doctoral degree in health informatics.
