This guide attempts to compile internet-based research into a thorough directory of existing higher education programs in the scientific and health informatics domains. The university and program information is presented in two different ways: tables arranged by program type and alphabetical listings of higher education facilities organized by country. If accessing the information from the wiki, the tabular data is sortable by location and degree type for extra utility. The alphabetical listing is organized by country and, if applicable, state/territory to allow users to browse what's available in a particular region.

A few minor limitations affect this guide. First, language acted as a small barrier in thoroughness, as most searches were conducted in English. This means some informatics programs described online in non-English languages may have been missed. As such, the guide presumes some university programs outside of English-speaking countries were likely missed. Second, this guide recognizes that variance in terminology, i.e., labels applied to academic programs, made classifying some programs difficult, particularly biomedical informatics programs. Programs were compiled by the label applied by the university, but a biomedical informatics program, for example, may have more similarities to a bioinformatics program in some cases.

Finally, a wealth of universities exists around the world, physical and online. This was a project done by one person over many long hours, all while recognizing that regular updates will be required (as universities often change the URLs and program availability rapidly). No guarantee is made this list is authoritative.
