Do you want a great job when you graduate?

Launch your healthcare career by applying to the Bachelor of Applied Health Information Science degree. Help fill a skill shortage for in-demand jobs, to name a few: data analysts, business intelligence specialists, privacy professionals, and clinical informatics specialists.

The Bachelor of Applied Health Information Science (Honours) degree is an innovative four-year, Hybrid Flexible (HyFlex) program focusing on health informatics and health information management. You will experience a variety of real-life learning opportunities that will enrich your learning experience. You will be challenged to use creativity and problem-solving skills to design, implement and evaluate a broad range of projects with community partners. You will design health informatics and information management solutions while learning to maintain security, privacy, and confidentiality.

Two paid co-op terms prepare you for several in-demand career opportunities in the health-care industry. Our graduates enable the health-care system to achieve its goals of person-centred, safe, high- quality and sustainable health care through data-informed problem solving. By using applied and integrated knowledge and skills from health information science, biomedical and health sciences, information technology and management sciences, you can make a positive impact to the health of the communities.

The Bachelor of Applied Health Information Science degree offers a HyFlex course delivery mode where students participate in classes online (synchronously & asynchronously), with optional in-person learning. This innovative degree helps you develop critical thinking and communication skills that enable you to work successfully on inter-professional teams. With small class sizes, dedicated professors, leading-edge course design, and a HyFlex delivery, this degree program makes continuing your education and advancing your career possible.

The program is accredited by the Canadian College of Health Information Management (CCHIM). Graduates can challenge the National Certification Exam (NCE) to earn a Certified Health Information Management (CHIM) professional designation.

 

Note:

  • Advanced standing pathways are available for graduates with diplomas in health information management or in Conestoga’s Health Office Administration program.
