|Description:||Health Information Science is the study of how health data are collected, stored and communicated; how this data is processed into health information suitable for administrative and clinical decision making; and how computer and telecommunications technology can be applied to support these processes. Students learn to identify what information and data are needed by doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, government planners and other health care professionals and how they are used in order to make effective health care decisions.
The distinguishing feature of the Co-operative Education approach is the inclusion, as an integral part of the degree, of three work terms of approximately four months duration each (13 weeks minimum). These work terms begin after the student’s second year (all courses listed under first and second year must normally be completed before a student goes on a work term) and normally alternate with formal academic terms in Health Information Science.
