Winner Ng, a health informatics specialist at Encare AB in Stockholm, Sweden, completed a Master of Medical Science in Health Informatics and a Master of Science in Health Informatics from Karolinska Institutet (KI) in 2020. Winner's interest in health informatics grew during their experience working at a tertiary hospital in Jakarta, Indonesia, where they saw the importance of implementing health informatics to enhance healthcare quality and patient safety. Winner chose to study at KI after discovering the Joint Master's Programme in Health Informatics, which aligned with their goals. They had a positive experience at KI, benefiting from well-prepared lectures, diverse perspectives from classmates with various backgrounds, and opportunities to participate in health informatics student competitions.

After graduating from KI, Winner proactively built their network, connected with health informatics companies, and participated in events and competitions. This approach led to a job opportunity that aligned with their career aspirations, and they were hired a few months before graduation. Winner's current role as a health informatics specialist involves using their medical background to interpret clinical guidelines and collaborate with IT developers, as well as providing clinical-related customer support. Due to the pandemic, they have been working remotely, starting their day by checking customer support tickets and collaborating with colleagues.

Winner credits KI for leveraging their profile and providing them with the necessary skills to enter the job market successfully. Although they acknowledge that their knowledge and skills might not be the most extensive, KI taught them how to seek resources for self-improvement effectively. In the future, Winner aims to settle down in Stockholm and continue contributing their clinical perspective to develop IT solutions that prioritize the needs of clinical users, ultimately improving the quality of care. Their advice to current students is to understand their life purpose, pursue fields they are passionate about, and strive to build a lasting legacy.
