Clark College offers degree transfer program in health informatics
Clark College now offers a degree transfer program in health informatics. It’s a rapidly growing profession that blends health services and information technology. Health informatics is the newest transfer degree program at Clark College. It will be launched during winter quarter 2012. Health informatics information technology (HIIT) is the study of resources and methods for the management of health information. The field encompasses and utilizes advanced computer technology to coordinate the computer information systems used by hospitals, medical clinics and health care professionals.
Students who complete Clark College’s Associate in Arts-Option B (AAB) degree can continue on to a bachelor’s degree program in health informatics information technology at Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT). In fact, Clark’s new health informatics information technology program is specifically designed for transfer to OIT’s program, which is taught at OIT’s Portland-area campus near Wilsonville. Information about the new Clark College program is available at www.clark.edu/cc/hiit. Information about OIT is available at www.oit.edu.
