FROM THE DIRECTOR
Started as a program in 2013, we have graduated many students that are successful in the industry. Faculty in our programs integrate critical thinking, simulation and guest speakers into teaching to provide students the opportunity to excel in the profession.
We encourage students to be active in the healthcare industry either as a volunteer or working part-time while pursuing their degree. Additionally, we provide all students with memberships to the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). Students are encouraged to attend local and national conferences to meet and network with other professionals in the health IT industry.
Our graduates are in high demand. Many students find employment across the country before graduation with organizations such as Cerner, EPIC, Allscripts, IBM Watson Health, Change Healthcare, Emory Healthcare, Piedmont Healthcare and Wellstar Health System.
