The University of Wisconsin has launched an online Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management and Technology degree program, being offered through local campuses in Green Bay, Parkside and Stevens Point.

Students are eligible if they have completed at least 60 semester credits of transferable coursework with a 2.0 or better grade point average. Three courses are prerequisites: algebra, biology and communications. The new curriculum for the degree, which can be completed in two years, calls for 20 classes with a total of 60 credits.

Topics covered include health and medical terminology, medical ethics, information technology in health care, issues related to providers and health benefit plans, and leadership and change management, among others. The program has two tracks: health information technology and health information management. Students will take 16 core courses, then four more courses in the selected track.

Courses begin in fall 2012. More information and applications are available at http://himt.wisconsin.edu.
