We are proud of the instruction we provide as well as the supporting informational technology used to assist both the on-campus and distance-learning students as they prepare for professional fulfillment and career advancement.  

We recently developed and launched two new programs that are offered completely online, the Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Therapy (BSRT) and the Masters in Health Informatics (MHI).  Additionally, we have welcomed the existing Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management (HIM) program to our department, joining the Advanced Medical Imaging (AMIT), and Medical Laboratory Science (MLS). The variety of programs housed in the Department of Clinical and Health Information Sciences speaks to the rich diversity of disciplines required to deliver health care in the 21st century.
