Earn a degree in the increasingly in-demand field of Health Informatics and Information Management (HIIM) from two fully accredited institutions: Concordia University Chicago and Resurrection University. This unique program allows you to earn a bachelor of science degree while enjoying all the extracurricular activities and student support services provided by both universities.
HIIM professionals are found in many departments within traditional health care organizations. They are also routinely employed in government agencies, insurance companies, research settings and education. By ensuring the most timely and accurate information is available to make health care decisions, HIIM improves the quality of health care.
There is no separate admission process for Resurrection University. However, students enrolled in the program must successfully complete prerequisite courses and remain in good academic standing during their studies at CUC in order to move on to ResU. Upon successful completion of all four years of the program, you will receive a diploma listing both universities.
As a member of two campus communities, you will have the opportunity to participate in activities and access support services at both universities during enrollment. You are encouraged to take advantage of CUC resources and continue to live in Concordia-Chicago residence halls, even while attending courses at ResU. Both universities are jointly committed to helping all students succeed, ensuring strong support systems during the educational experience.
The curriculum for the HIIM major includes courses in health care information systems, comparative records, applied legal and ethical aspects of HIIM, data analysis and health care finance. Don’t expect a classroom-only learning environment—program content is covered online and is also experienced on campus or in clinical affiliations. These courses will expose you to environments where you learn from professionals in the field, giving you first-hand experience in what is expected in the HIIM field.
