Learn the fundamentals of acquiring, analyzing and protecting medical information vital to providing quality patient care

UIC’s undergraduate minor in health information management provides students  majoring in any discipline with a fundamental proficiency of health care information technology, medical records, health care systems, health data analysis and quality.

The flexible curriculum allows you to select your electives in the areas of health care data analytics; information systems and technology; health care management; quality improvement, legal and compliance; and information governance, allowing you to tailor your minor based on your interests and your major.

Students with a computer science or business-based major can enhance their employment opportunities in the health care sector.
