Clinical Informatics, Post-Baccalaureate Certificate

self-paced, online.

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Clinical Informatics (PBCCI) is a 21-credit certificate that was designed for health professionals who are adding health informatics to their existing scope of practice. The certificate consists of 6 required courses and a 75-hour practicum. The required courses cover a range of topics from applied clinical informatics to precision medicine and public health.

The certificate can be completed in as little as 12 months, although completing in 24 months is more standard if only one course is taken at a time. Students have the option to take as long as 36 months to complete, which is convenient if clinical or other professional priorities change while enrolled. The entire program can be taken remotely and there are no requirements to come to the campus. 

NOTE: F1 Visa sponsorship is not available for the PBCCI.
