Career Possibilities

The healthcare industry depends on big data to make important decisions. With federal mandates for health insurance and electronic health records, voluminous clinical, operational and reimbursement information is required for clinical research and business decisions. However, there is a current shortage of healthcare data analysts. The healthcare analytics certificate prepares you for this in-demand field. In addition, successful completion of the undergraduate certificate program could help you pursue a degree in business, health, or law.
