What are the HCI degree and certificate options?

In addition to being an exciting career for the high school graduate who enjoys computer science and is interested in health care, other program options exist for seasoned health care or information technology professionals who are interested in transitioning into a new arena within the industry.

Certificate in Health Informatics Technology (HIT)

The HIT Certificate was originally created as part of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology Workforce Grant. The goal of the undergraduate certificate is to provide existing information technology and health professionals the training needed to transition into the field. The courses are all online, and can be completed in as little as two semesters.

Minor in HCI

The minor is designed for students in another four year degree program at Tech. The HCI minor gives students additional skills and knowledge that they can apply to the health care industry (such as business students) or in the informatics field (such as nursing).

Graduate Certificate in Health Care Informatics

The HCI graduate certificate is designed to provide additional skills necessary in health care informatics and will prepare professionals such as information technologists, computer scientists, or health care professionals in advanced skills required for leadership in health care informatics and will build on their current bachelor’s degree.
