Vocabulary training course

Students are required to complete a pre-program, self-directed online training module in basic concepts and vocabulary in health, medical nomenclature, and computer science terminology. The training course provides students with a grounding in vocabulary and core concepts needed for success in our foundational courses.

This canvas-based training course is designed as a series of units within three larger modules. Each unit has an associated quiz. Students must complete all modules in order to receive the required certificate of completion. Entering students are encouraged to complete this training PRIOR to arrival on campus in August. Providing proof of its completion is a requirement early on in HCIP 6380 (Introduction to Health Informatics).

CHHS good scholar tutorial

We ask that all HIA students complete the “Good Scholar” tutorial, found under ‘Student Resources‘ on the Public Health Sciences site.

The Good Scholar Tutorial is an interactive learning tool to help you understand the importance of correctly referencing and citing outside sources you use in your written papers so that you can demonstrate your scholarship and avoid plagiarism.
