Information About HIMT Courses

For more information about HIMT courses go to Program Information. The published plan of study assumes an autumn semester start date for semester one. Starting the program in any other semester will require an alternate plan of study that will extend the time to complete the program.

Please note that although all HIMT programs are primarilyweb-based, students are required to come to campus for proctored tests and occasional class meetings.

Students are also required to attend professional practice experiences (PPE) throughout the semester at assigned healthcare facilities if they are enrolled in either the HIMT degree program or the Medical Coding Certificate program. The PPEs for the HIMT degree are HIMT 2860 and HIMT 2870. The PPE for the Medical Coding Certificate is HIMT 2860.

HIMT 2860 and HIMT 2870 require you to spend time (typically day-time business hours, NO weekends, NO evenings) at area healthcare facilities for "hand-on" practical experience.
