Prerequisite Courses: College Algebra; Statistics
Oral Comprehensives: All health informatics students are required to complete successfully an oral examination that enables the faculty to evaluate the student's competency in the discipline. The evaluation takes place during the student's final semester.
Internship: Students may elect to participate in a 3 credit summer internship between the first and second years in the program. An internship is strongly recommended, but not required. Students will enroll in HMI 7689 Field Experience while completing the summer internship.
