The College of Natural Sciences and the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin, in collaboration with multiple Health IT and healthcare partners, have created an innovative 9 week post-baccalaureate professional education program designed to “fast track” university graduates into the rapidly evolving field of Health IT. This professional education program is designed to meet the skills and workforce training requirements identified by major Health IT industry and healthcare sponsors of the program.

It has gained national recognition for its comprehensive curriculum consisting of healthcare policy, economics, technology, data systems, workflow evaluation and business practices. Students enjoy access to a unique clinic environment where they learn workflow processes and clinic operations. They gain hands-on experience with six electronic health record (EHR) systems, and two health information exchange (HIE) software systems in a one-of-a-kind HIE laboratory . Both a real world practicum experience and extensive professional development are program hallmarks.

Graduates receive a certificate in Health Information Technology and Health Information Exchange, and most have multiple on-site job interviews at the time of graduation. On average, 92% of the 333 graduates who have sought employment in Health IT have found jobs with 40 Health IT organizations in Texas and nationwide.
