Divya Jahagirdar

Precision Health Program Certificate Student
School of Information Health Informatics MS Student


Divya is a first-year master’s student in the Master’s of Health Informatics program. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Surgery and worked as a licensed dentist in Hyderabad, South India, before coming to graduate school at the University of Michigan. Her clinical work experience taught her the importance of interoperability and digitized health records in a fast-paced medical set-up, and her coursework introduced her to the benefits of personalized medicine and precision healthcare. Divya’s primary interest lies in the exponential growth in unstructured data in electronic health records and how the use of use machine learning models can help clinicians achieve their goals. Clinical Decision Support (CDS), in particular, is something she is deeply interested in given her background as a healthcare provider.
