Health Information Management 504
The major in health information management (HIM) is a bachelor of science degree program offered jointly by the Rutgers University-Newark College of Arts and Sciences (NCAS) and Rutgers School of Health Professions (SHP).

The HIM major prepares students to become health care professionals responsible for the management of health information systems in a manner that is consistent with medical, administrative, ethical, and legal requirements. HIM professionals collect, analyze, and utilize data to provide information critical to the health care industry. Career opportunities in health information now extend well beyond the health information department and the acute care facility. Professionals with technical expertise, problem-solving skills, knowledge of clinical medicine, and superior communication skills are needed to ensure quality health care documentation, protect patient confidentiality, and develop and maintain the electronic health record. To learn more about the HIM major, please visit the website.

HIM majors complete four semesters of coursework in NCAS. Once they have completed all degree requirements at Rutgers University-Newark, including all core curriculum requirements as well as the prerequisite courses necessary for admission to the HIM major, students then apply to transfer to SHP. HIM prerequisite requirements completed in NCAS are:

Course Number
Course Title
Anatomy and Physiology I
Anatomy and Physiology II
College Algebra
21:640:211 or 21:220:203
Introduction to Computers and Information Processing
Financial Accounting
Introduction to Management

NOTE:  Completion of these prerequisite courses fulfills the second concentration requirement for the Rutgers University-Newark Core Curriculum.

Students complete the professional training for the major once they have transferred to SHP. The most current description of the major course requirements can be found on the website.
