Health Information TechnologyAssociate in Applied Science
From state-of-the-art equipment to digital record-keeping, technology is becoming increasingly critical to the health care industry. If you want to be a part of this growing trend, our partnership program may be for you! Students will attend Salem Community College for their first two semesters, then transition to Camden County College for their final two semesters. The program includes studies in the areas of anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, medical coding and terminology, legal and ethical issues, professional practice experience and pathophysiology.
Students who successfully complete the program may pursue entry-level careers as Health Information Technicians in hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, physician’s offices, long-term care facilities, home health agencies, and public health departments. Although the program is not designed for transfer, some credits may be transferrable to a 4-year institution for advanced studies.
