The Health Information Management post-baccalaureate program is a highly-specialized two-year program designed to prepare you for a career working behind the scenes as a health information management professional.
Every hospital, government and health care provider has to be accountable. That's where the health information management professional comes in, keeping a record of every health condition and service performed in our health care system.
A complex, international coding system is used. The information is entered into a national database. Hospitals, governments and the Canadian Institute of Health Information use the database to compile reports as a basis for health care decisions on everything from how to manage waitlists for surgery to figuring out how healthy Canadians are as a whole.
If you are interested in health care and enjoy working with computers, numbers and details, Health Information Management may be the ideal career for you.
Please note that this program requires that you have a bachelor degree from a Canadian institution or recognized international academic institution. Pre-requisite courses are also necessary for program entry. For complete details about admission requirements, courses, intake dates and more, visit the Program and Course Catalogue.
