Start an Exciting New Career from Anywhere in Canada with CD-ED’s Online Health Information Management Program
Anne Michalski was unsure about going back to attend school as a mature student. Anne realized she could apply her previous data management experience to CD-ED’s exciting new Health Information Management (HIM) course, which is a unique online training program in Canada.
Throughout the program Anne appreciated the advantages of online training. Flexibility of hours was the most important feature to her, but the lack of a commute to class, no distractions in her work environment, and the ability to contact other students or her instructors when required were also helpful aspects of online training.
During her practicum Anne realized from speaking with other students that their programs were 3 years long, whereas Anne was able to complete hers in 102 weeks, less than 2 years. She noted that if you have previous experience with health records you could complete the program even faster since it is self-paced!
Taking the HIM course provided Anne with many opportunities. She was able to conduct her first year practicum in Montreal, and she was exposed to many professionals in the HIM world through interactive webinar presentations. On the subject of webinars Anne commented, “Many of the lessons covered current articles for a better understanding of medical research papers, current events and challenges to health data as well exciting new developments within healthcare management.”
One of the reasons Anne was attracted to this profession was the wonderful opportunities it holds, from hospital records to medical research to worldwide standardization of terms and classifications. There are also a variety of jobs that a graduate can pursue, including: coding, coordinating, privacy advocating, programming, and standardizing or even teaching to name just a few.
When asked about other important aspects of the HIM profession she answered, “the high ethical standard and sense of co-operation that are encouraged within the membership. The sense of sharing and learning that continues far beyond the initial classroom phase is not found in many other professions and brings a sense of community with many opportunities to have a positive impact on the direction of health care.” Anne added her final thoughts stating, “I feel blessed to have this new career direction thanks to the great instructors at CD-ED.”
