The healthcare industry is moving towards the widespread use of digital records and electronic information transfer. This is resulting in a need for healthcare professionals to be knowledgeable in information technology and for information technology professionals at healthcare facilities to be more knowledgeable of the healthcare industry. Professionals in these two areas both need to understand the complexities of medical information being digitally stored and transferred. This 18 credit certificate program provides students with insight into both professional areas. Students may receive credit for previous coursework (up to 3 courses) upon academic review.

To earn an undergraduate certificate in HEALTHCARE INFORMATICS , a minimum of 18 credits is required.
