Bachelor in Health Information Program
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The quality of medical care has improved tremendously in the last few decades due to the advances in
technology, thus creating fresh challenges in the field of healthcare. It is now widely recognized that health
service delivery is a team effort involving both clinicians and non-clinicians, and is not the sole duty of
physicians and nurses.1Professionals that can competently handle sophisticated machinery and advanced
protocols are now in high demand. In fact, diagnosis is now so dependent on technology, that allied and
healthcare professionals (AHPs) are vital to successful treatment delivery. Effective delivery of healthcare
services depends largely on the nature of education, training and appropriate orientation towards community
health of all categories of health personnel, and their capacity to function as an integrated team.
The handbook has been designed with a focus on performance-based outcomes pertaining to different levels. The learning goals and objectives of the undergraduate and graduate education program will be based on the performance expectations. They will be articulated as learning goals (why we teach this) and learning objectives (what the students will learn). Using the framework, students will learn to integrate their knowledge, skills and abilities in a hands-on manner in a professional healthcare setting. These learning goals are divided into nine key areas, though the degree of required involvement may differ across various levels of qualification and professional cadres:
- Clinical care
- Membership of a multidisciplinary health team
- Ethics and accountability at all levels (clinical, professional, personal and social)
- Commitment to professional excellence
- Leadership and mentorship
- Social accountability and responsibility
- Scientific attitude and scholarship (only at higher level- PhD)
- Lifelong learning
