Program Type: Continuing Education
The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) 10x10 utilizes curricular content from existing informatics training programs and other AMIA educational initiatives with a special emphasis toward programs with a proven track record in distance learning. The content provides a framework but also covers plenty of detail, especially in areas such as electronic and personal health records, health information exchange, standards and terminology and health care quality and error prevention. UIC's contribution to the AMIA 10x10 is a one-semester course that provides an overview of the health informatics field, emphasizing key issues and challenges for the field. This course is of particular value to clinical practitioners, as well as IT professionals, who are seeking to expand their knowledge of the health care information technology industry. The course has been taught at UIC for more than five years to both graduate and advanced undergraduate students. No prerequisites are required.
