The Clarkson College Certificate in Health Information Management (HIM) program is offered fully online and is designed for individuals who either wish to enter the medical billing and coding field or for those who currently work in hospitals, clinics, medical offices or insurance organizations and would like to obtain a coding credential.

No prerequisites are required upon admission into the Certificate in HIM program, and you are able to enroll in the fall, spring or summer. Throughout the four-semester program, you will learn to use classification systems and databases to maintain patients’ medical and treatment histories. At the completion of the HIM certificate program, you will be prepared to sit for the Certified Coding Associate (CCA) or Certified Computing Professional (CPC) certification exams.

With a certificate in HIM, you become eligible for more advanced degree opportunities. At Clarkson College, we offer both an Associate of Science in Health Information Technology degree and a Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management degree—both online and designed for medical coders and health information technicians wishing to advance within the HIM profession.
