Health IT Foundations for IT Professionals Certificate Program
This Health Information Technology certificate program is composed of three courses, each 11-12 weeks in length. They include Healthcare Fundamentals (55 hours), Health IT Data Standards (55 hours), and Health IT Application (55 hours). The purpose of the program is to provide experienced IT professionals with the knowledge and skills they need to transition to a healthcare environment. Successful participants typically also have some higher education experience. The materials are designed for online delivery, and the coursework typically requires approximately 10-12 hours per week per course on the part of participants. We also highly recommend that educators supplement these three HIT courses with training in medical terminology to help participants become familiar with the language of healthcare.
