WEST PLAINS, Mo. – An informational seminar about Missouri State University-West Plains’ health information technology (HIT) program will take place from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Monday, April 27, at the university’s Mountain Grove facility, Shannon Hall, 401 E. 17th St.
Mountain Grove Campus Coordinator Lu Adams and HIT Director Connie Yates will provide information about the HIT industry, available jobs, the program at Missouri State-West Plains and the university. They also will answer questions from those attending.
Organizers pointed out several HIT classes will be available online during the 2015 summer session, including Introduction to Health Information Technology (HIT 100) and Health Care Systems (HIT 115). In addition, many of the general education courses required for the program can be completed at the Mountain Grove campus, they added. There also is the possibility some HIT classes scheduled for the 2015 fall semester may be offered via interactive television (ITV) at Mountain Grove. That decision will be based upon enrollment and demand, they said.
