Health Professionals Certificate at University of Minnesota, School of Nursing

Leadership in Health Informatics Technology for Health Professionals Certificate

By combining formal clinical or public health baccalaureate or high preparation with course work in health information technology (HIT), individuals will be able to lead the successful deployment and use of HIT to achieve transformational improvement in the quality, safety, outcomes, and thus in the value, of health services.

The certificate requires the completion of 15 credits of graduate course work. Students may petition out of 40 percent of courses taken elsewhere and/or request credit for relevant work experience. Students must complete course requirements within 6-12 months.

Admission is twice a year. The final deadline is November 1 for spring admission, and July 1 for fall admission.

Students may qualify for up to $10,000 in tuition support for informatics courses. Refer to the University Partnership in Health Informatics to determine if you might be eligible for this support. Any portion of tuition or fees not covered by UPHI are the responsibility of the student.

The program is completely online. Students participate each week in courses. Either 2 or 3 times per semester there are required sessions scheduled in which all students participate. Certificate students have the option of either attending in-person or "virtually."
