Reaping the benefits of an education that goes beyond the traditional classroom setting, you will also have the opportunity to partake in hands-on learning in clinically-based work experience courses (upon a successful background check) and see first-hand how your practice using healthcare information systems can promote efficiency in hospitals, clinics, or health agencies and prepare you for your career in health information management.
