The minor in Health Information Technology introduces students, in a non-technical context, to the utilization of health information management in the professional arena of health care management and policy. Students will examine the current and projected role of health information management in the delivery of health care and development of health policy and apply this information in a practical research endeavor.
At least 12 credits must be unique to the minor and cannot be used to fulfill the program of study requirements of the student’s major, concentration, undergraduate certificate, or another minor. Students should be familiar with university-wide requirements for minors described in AP.5.3.4 Minors.
