Welcome Message

Welcome to the Department of Clinical and Health Information Sciences!

Thank you for taking the time to review our website and learn more about the programs housed in our department.

The programs in our department provide instruction for students in several of the allied health sciences. Our students and alumni are distributed throughout Ohio and the country, as well as the world. We are proud of the instruction we provide as well as the supporting informational technology used to assist both the on-campus and distance-learning students as they prepare for professional fulfillment and career advancement.  

We recently developed and launched two new programs that are offered completely online, the Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Therapy (BSRT) and the Masters in Health Informatics (MHI).  Additionally, we have welcomed the existing Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management (HIM) program to our department, joining the Advanced Medical Imaging (AMIT), and Medical Laboratory Science (MLS). The variety of programs housed in the Department of Clinical and Health Information Sciences speaks to the rich diversity of disciplines required to deliver health care in the 21st century. This is further reflected by the interprofessional collaboration among our faculty and staff.

We look forward to interacting with all of our students as they acquire the skills and knowledge for an exciting career in healthcare.

Thank you,
