The Practicum and Practicum Seminar are the last two courses that each student will complete in the HSM or HIM program. Before a student can register for these courses, the School performs an audit on the student’s account to determine that he/she has completed all other program courses.

Students are encouraged to view their Advisement Report before Practicum, to ensure that all coursework is met before Practicum.  Most students can view their Advisement Report on RAMSS.  

If you are a HSM student admitted before Fall 2006, or an HIM student admitted before Fall 2007, please fill out the Manual Advisement Report form and send to Curriculum Advising for processing.

Registration for the fall Practicum takes place in late August, and registration for the winter Practicum opens in late December/early January.

Students cannot register themselves for the Practicum; it requires department consent. The department must approve the student’s practicum contract before registering the student for the Practicum and Practicum Seminar courses.

Each student is responsible for ensuring that there are no “Holds” on his or her student account that might impede registration for these final courses .

Flexible Schedule

Students in the Health Services Management and Health Information Management programs have the option of taking courses online, in the evening or on weekends. They can also mix the various modes of study.
