New Health Information Fundamentals program to launch Fall 2021
The Canadian College of Health Information Management is working with McMaster University Continuing Education to modernize pathways into the Health Information Management (HIM) profession to meet a new program design standard that is better aligned to student and industry needs. This is in response to industry demand for certified professionals, as well as to appeal to people from other educational backgrounds who wish to join the profession.
The modernized pathway is for applicants who hold a degree (or are pursuing a degree) and who successfully complete a new program incorporating the curricular competencies identified for health information fundamentals. Successful students will be eligible to write the Certified Health Information Management (CHIM) national certification examination that grants the Canadian CHIM professional designation. A key benefit of this approach is the reduced time required to prepare for the certification examination and achieve the CHIM designation due to a focused, streamlined educational program.
McMaster University Continuing Education is proud to be a partner for this modernized pathway. The new Health Information Fundamentals program will launch in Fall 2021. Please check back this program website or subscribe to our mailing list for news and updates.
