The Department of Computer Information Systems administers a Joint Degree program in Health Information Management. The program involves General Education, Core Curriculum and pre-professional coursework during two years at Felician College, and completing the program at UMDNJ-SHRP, culminating in a jointly awarded Bachelor of Science degree. This program is accredited by CAHIIM (www.cahiim.org). Health Information Managers are responsible for managing patient health information and medical records, administrating computer information systems, and coding the diagnosis and procedures for healthcare services provided to patients. The HIM Program involves four semesters and two summer sessions at Felician College, during which all general education, CORE and pre-professional courses are completed, amounting to 65 credits, followed by two years (61 credits) of coursework at UMDNJ-SHRP.
- Students file an application to UMDNJ by May 1st of the year prior to their anticipated fall enrollment.
- Students must secure a GPA of 2.75 or above for coursework completed before the professional phase of the program, and complete all courses with a grade of “C” or better.
- UMDNJ may require changes to the pre-professional course requirements due to changes in accreditation requirements. Students admitted to the professional phase of the program are required to submit forms relating to health and immunization, technical standards-essential functions and criminal background check, and are required to attend the UMDNJ-SHRP orientations.
