Working with The Centre for Education and Training (TCET) to provide education and resources to new Canadians.

This initiative enables 60 new Canadians (in five groups of 12) to receive Digital Health Canada Core Health Informatics (HI) education along with soft skills training from TCET. Eligible students are professionals seeking alternative careers in HI; each must have a post-secondary degree in IT or healthcare and a Canadian Language Benchmark of 7 or higher. Funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, the training provides one-on-one employment planning and support, networking, job shadowing, informational interview opportunities, and digital health sector-specific information and resources. More information can be found here.

The Digital Health Canada Core HI Education is presented in two modules per week, from 9am – 12:30pm, over a three week period. Each module typically takes 3.5 hours to allow for instruction, questions, and discussion. The following six modules from Digital Health Canada’s curriculum have been selected for presentation: The Canadian Healthcare System – Clinical and Health Services – Information Management, Analysis and Evaluation – Information Technology, System Requirements and Analysis – Systems Design, Selection and Procurement; Project Management; Implementation, Support and Maintenance – Privacy and Security; System Testing and Evaluation.

We welcomed our first group of 12 students for a three week session from October 23 – November 9, 2018.
