Appropriate sequencing of courses is necessary for progression to subsequent courses. This minor would enhance and broaden the scope of various other fields of study by providing a well-rounded introduction and an opportunity for practical applications of the administrative functions related to the management of health information. Completing this minor does not meet eligibility requirements for the R.H.I.A. (Registered Health Information Administrator) certification examination offered by the American Health Information Management Association. Academic advisement is important prior to enrolling in HIM minor courses due to sequencing requirements.
