Free 6-Month Training in Electronic Health Records at CCC

 

Camden County College is offering programs of study to prepare area residents for the 50,000 jobs projected to be available in electronic health records, which is part of the nation’s top career field for college graduates, within the next few years. Most students will be able to enroll in one of the programs for free and complete their studies completely online.

 

A trend report from the University of California San Diego Extension has identified the top career option for college graduates as health information technology, which includes electronic health records. Students who successfully complete a CCC program will receive a certificate and college credits.

 

Training will prepare students to work in several different roles as an electronic health records consultant. These roles include clinical consultant; implementation manager; practice workflow redesign specialist; and trainer.

 

Full scholarships will be available to many students who are accepted into these programs. Funding for the programs and the scholarships was made possible through a grant awarded to a 13-institution consortium, led by Tidewater Community College of Virginia and including CCC, under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

 

The first step to enroll in one of these programs is to attend an information session. The next session will be 6 to 7 p.m. Jan. 25 in The Forum, Room 101, of the Connector Building, which is on the College’s Blackwood Campus at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road in Gloucester Township.

 

Program curricula, the application process and related issues will be discussed during the information session. No appointment is needed to attend.
