  • Objectives
    The two-year Health Information Management diploma program prepares graduates with specialized skills and knowledge in managing health information requested by health care facilities/organizations. The emphasis of the program's curriculum is to train students with a unique blend of theories and practices in health informatics, health analysis, medical coding, health information systems management, health ethics, health law, and research methodology. Upon successful completion of the program, students will have been trained to collect, analyze and present statistical data. They will be able to develop, implement and maintain health information systems, as well as provide essential information for clinical research and advise community health care professionals on health information.
  • Practical experience
    In the final three semesters, students will be placed in an accredited clinical laboratory where they will function, under supervision, as a member of the laboratory team. Students may be required to complete this work experience out of town. Students must be financially prepared to relocate and support themselves away from Sudbury for the clinical semesters. A student can be sent to any of the following clinical sites: - Sudbury Regional Hospital (HRSRH) - North Bay General Hospital - West Parry Sound Health Centre - MDS Laboratory, Sudbury - Kirkland and District Hospital - Sault Ste Marie area hospitals - Thunder Bay Regional Health Services - Muskoka Algonquin Health Centre - South Muskoka Memorial Hospital Site
