Free 6-Month Training for Career in Electronic Health Records at CCC


Camden County College is offering three programs of study to prepare area residents for the 50,000 jobs that are projected to be available in the electronic health records field during the next few years. Most students will be able to enroll in one of the programs for free.


CCC's Health Information Technology Department is offering this career training in a fully online format. Students who successfully complete one of the programs will receive a certificate along with college credits.


The first step in enrolling in one of these programs is to attend an information session. These have been scheduled from 6 to 7:30 p.m. April 19 in Room 110 of the William G. Rohrer Center in Cherry Hill; 2 to 3 p.m. May 11 in Room 510 of College Hall on the Camden City Campus; and 2 to 3 p.m. June 8 in the Forum of the Connector Building on the Blackwood Campus in Gloucester Township.


Training will prepare students to work in several different roles as a consultant. These roles include clinical consultant; implementation manager; practice workflow redesign specialist; and trainer.


Full scholarships will be available to many students who are accepted into these programs. Funding for the programs and the scholarships was made possible through a grant awarded to a 13-institution consortium, led by Tidewater Community College of Virginia and including CCC, under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.


Program curricula, the application process and related issues will be discussed at each of the information sessions. Additional sessions will be scheduled monthly. No appointment is needed to attend.
