B.S. in Health Informatics and Information Management

Nonica Santigo _ VA Med Ctr _20150310-cohpa _150310_061

In the age of technology, managing patient records and databases is central to the effective and efficient delivery of health care. By earning a bachelor's degree in health informatics and information management from the University of Central Florida, you will position yourself for a career in the heart of the health care industry.

What sets our curriculum apart is that it is designed to present a correlation between classroom theory and practical experience. This means that after learning about business management, systems analysis, medical coding, and computer applications in health care, students will apply their knowledge and skills in a real-world setting. During the summer term of their senior year, students gain hands-on experience by interning at an affiliated health care facility in the state of Florida. After completing the management affiliation, students return to campus to complete their required courses.

Students who graduate from our program are eligible to apply to write the National Registration Examination, administered by the American Health Information Management Association, to qualify as a Registered Health Information Administrator.

The Department of Health Management and Informatics currently offers the following undergraduate programs in health informatics and information management:
